Nova Scotia Mi'kmaw Summer Games

150 Reservation Road

902-756-2765



In fall 2009, a group of Mi’kmaw Chiefs from Unama’ki began discussions on reviving the Summer Games, an athletic gathering and competitions that Mi’kmaw communities in Nova Scotia previously held from the 1970s to 1990s. The Chiefs agreed that it is very important to encourage youth involvement in sports, and ensure that Mi’kmaw traditions are passed on to younger generations. In the past, the Summer Games were a great way to celebrate both sports and culture. Lifelong friendships were built because of the games, which helps strengthen the Mi’kmaw Nation.
