Spirit of the Bison media coverage

February 5, 2024 — 

On Saturday, February 3rd, community members came together to celebrate Indigenous sport at the ‘Spirit of the Bison’.

The University of Manitoba aspires to and embraces the spirit of the bison. This strong, swift, hardy being lives as part of a herd once so large it covered the horizon, and the sound of their hooves striking the earth sounded like the thunder of the frequent storms that give life to the plains.

During this event, Indigenous athletes were invited to watch Bisons athletes competing in volleyball, basketball and hockey. It was a truly inspiring day and local media came out to capture some of the excitement.

Here is a video from CBC Manitoba of the Strong Warrior Girls Anishinaabe Singers performing the Canadian anthem in Anishinaabemowin. 

And CTV was also in attendance and put together this story on the days events.
