HALIFAX — The North American Indigenous Games are set to hit the East Coast next July, and Wednesday, June 5 was the unveiling of the official logo choice.

This is the first time that the games will be played on traditional Mi’kmaw territory, whose petroglyphs were the source of the logos inspiration.

The ancient Mi’kmaq petroglyphs that were discovered across Nova Scotia were used to help in portraying three figures in a canoe representing the First Nation Peoples, including the Inuit, First Nations, and Metis.

Organizers say the 2020 North American Indigenous Games will be the biggest event to hit Halifax with more than 5,000 athletes from across Canada and the USA to compete in 17 different sports including lacrosse, canoeing, kayaking, rifle shooting and basketball.

The Indigenous Games were previously held in Toronto in 2017.
