Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame has unveiled a new, first of its kind educational exhibit in Calgary.

Titled the Indigenous Sport Heroes Education Experience, the exhibit will offer a glimpse into the truths and experiences of Indigenous hall of famers.

The online exhibit features 16 “chapters,” 14 of which are dedicated to the Indigenous all of famers including NHL great Bryan Trottier, runner Joseph Keeper and Olympian and Karakwinontha Waneek Horn-Miller.

According to Cheryl Bernard, president and CEO of Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, the exhibit aims to promote conversation about equality and inclusion.

“Really it tells the stories of each of these Indigenous hall of famers, and what they had to overcome and the history and the lived experience in their life and you know we realized right then that we had to share this with all,” says Bernard. “I mean for us, it’ll start a conversation.

“We hope it’ll create awareness and really what we hope is that there’s a possibility for reconciliation through the lens of sport.”
