Indigenous Identities and Sport

Our researchers explore the barriers and facilitators to participation within Indigenous populations. Specifically, we are asking what barriers and facilitators exist for girls and women, and two-spirited individuals who identify as Indigenous. How do these barriers and facilitators affect the quality of the sport experience? How might sport be transformed to be more inclusive of Indigenous individuals?

Here are some examples of research findings related to Indigenous identities and sport, led by our community of scholars.
