June 21st is one of celebration with National Aboriginal Day in different cities across Canada. These events are opportunities to strengthen cultural identity and make connections between the past, present and future. With technology, communication about these events makes them more accessible to those who want to learn more about aboriginal culture.
I came across this quote from Nelson Mandela about the power of sport in breaking down discrimination and uniting people.
“ Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.” Nelson Mandela 2000
