Aboriginal Games and Activities course goes off-campus
Posted Thursday, June 11, 2009 5:21 PM
Student in FKRM’s Aboriginal Games and Activities course negotiate a “Spider’s Web” using a diverse set of strategies.

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management took its Aboriginal Games and Activities course into the community recently, making the course available off-campus for the first time since its inception.

From May 22 – 24, and again from May 30 – June 2, the course was run out of Turtle Island Community Centre in the North End.

Student participation was made possible through partnerships between the University of Manitoba, the City of Winnipeg and a number of North End Aboriginal community organizations, who collaborated to support the enrolment of North End Aboriginal residents in the course.

Many of the students involved in the course already do community recreation work in the North End, and are currently incorporating some of the activities and lessons learned from their instructors (Mike Pierre and Blair Robillard) into their programs.

Delivery of the course was designed as a pilot for the proposed Community Recreation and Active Living initiative.
