Abstract

Abstract:

This paper is about participation in sport from the perspective of several Indigenous societies and includes a comparative analysis with mainstream competitive sport. The author utilizes his experiences from his own Kenienké:haka society and includes the seven teachings of the Anishnabé along with other examples from other Indigenous societies. The paper emphasizes the differences between an Indigenous cultural understating about sport that is rooted in community teachings over a mainstream individualistic one. There is an emphasis on how good community and team leaders are thought of and evolve within Indigenous societies.
