Games and sports have been central to developing a socially cohesive environment within Indigenous communities. Many of the games played today were invented in Indigenous communities. Games are an important way to understand a people’s worldview, and playing and understanding games teaches important aspects of Indigenous cultures. Games are played, created and reinvented in Indigenous communities to continue to provide recreation, strengthen social connections, share and sustain cultures, and teach traditional knowledge. In this course, students will be introduced to the cultural, social and political significance of Indigenous games, and will have opportunities to see how play contributes to Indigenous lives and cultures.
