Join us for the largest multi-sport and Indigenous cultural event to ever be held in Atlantic Canada since contact.
Kjipuktuk, as it is called by the Mi’kmaw Nation will host competitions in 16 sports over seven days and within 21 venues across Kjipuktuk (Halifax), Dartmouth and Millbrook First Nation, Nova Scotia.
NAIG 2023 will bring together more than 5000 athletes, coaches and team staff from 756 Indigenous Nations celebrating, sharing and reconnecting through sport and culture with the help of 3000 volunteers.
NAIG 2023 will take place from July 15-23.
Join the excitement and be a part of the NAIG team during this historical, Indigenous sport and cultural celebration! Become a volunteer, share your skills, expertise and knowledge. Without volunteers the games would not be possible. Volunteers are needed in all levels of the games from planning to supporting all aspects of the games leading up to and during the event.
