Valley contingent off to NAIG 2014

For the first time since they were held in the Cowichan Valley in 2008, the North American Indigenous Games are under way in Regina, Sask. this week. And just as was the case in 2008, there is a healthy contingent of athletes who call the Cowichan Valley home.

A full list of local athletes was not available, but at least 11 from the region are taking part in NAIG in Regina.

The list includes Joseph Sam in badminton, Wayne Daniels and Janessa Horne in canoe/kayak, Emily Adams in golf, Kaine Dreaver and Jimmy Johnnie in lacrosse, Brittany Brown, Benecia George and Seleana Jack in soccer, Justin Garrow in swimming and Crystal Charles and Rhianon Morrison in volleyball.
