Introduction

From ancient times, the Sacred Run was a living tradition among Native people. As the centuries went by, the tradition virtually disappeared. But approximately 30 years ago, the Sacred Run was revived and is still being run today.

This Learning Object Collection is based on the Virtual Museum of Canada exhibit, Living Traditions. Learn about the spirit and diversity of Indigenous culture and heritage. Join seven museums from across the continent in honouring the North American Indigenous Games by exploring the traditions and histories of sporting events and games of yesterday and today.
