The B.C. Sports Hall of Fame opens its new and highly anticipated Indigenous Sport Gallery today, at Gate A inside of BC Place Stadium.
Starting from Sept. 26, the gallery will be open daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The Indigenous Sport Gallery will celebrate the rich history and many contributions to sport by First Nations and Metis athletes, teams, coaches, builders and volunteers in B.C. Further, the gallery attempts to remedy the fact that Indigenous athletes and teams have not been properly celebrated and honoured over the course of our province’s history.
Indigenous Sport Gallery
The gallery will feature more than 1,000 square feet of permanent exhibit space, including:
- information about traditional Indigenous games
- artifacts and memorabilia from Indigenous athletes in all levels of sport
- a feature on the North American Indigenous Games
- a dedicated space, the Circle of Champions, which honours the Indigenous athletes that have been formally inducted to the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame.
The collection at the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame and Museum includes more than 25,000 artifacts and 20,000 archival documents representing 100 years of sporting accomplishments in British Columbia.
