Nisga'a Youth conquer the Nisga'a Amazing Race!

NLG’s Nisg̱a’a Youth Engagement Coordinator Leslie Robinson in collaboration with Nisg̱a’a Village Governments and Nisg̱a’a Museum staff planned a challenging, fun and exciting day of learning for Nisg̱a’a Youth on August 22nd.  The Nisga’a Amazing Race began in the Nisg̱a’a Village of Gingolx at 9am and commenced up river to the Nisg̱aa’a Museum, each Nisg̱a’a Village Government and community centre ending at the final stop, Nisg̱a’a Lisims Government.  The challenge of each leg of the race is for our Nisg̱a’a Youth to engage with Village Governments and NLG staff to learn facts about all things Nisg̱a’a. 

The concept of the race was to challenge our Nisga’a Youth to learn about the nation, Nisga’a treaty and the respective Village governments. To highlight what surrounds us, the beauty of where we live. One of the main components of the race was for the youth to introduce themselves in Nisga’a to the elders and to record each introduction. They were to walk 4 laps with elders in each community. Upon completion of the laps they gifted each elder. They conquered grizzly hill, they learned about the Nisga’a Museum. They showed great sportsmanship throughout the day and completed the race in a timely fashion. One of the final tasks was to submit all of the photos and the videos of the race. The youth ran this race with such respect and dignity. It was an inspiring day to see each of the participants complete the tasks set out. Thank you for taking part in the Nisga’a Amazing Race.
