The Boxing portion of the NAIG games has been cancelled by the host due to lack of entries received from the Provinces and the United States. They had wanted 3 entries for each weight class, but did not achieve that goal.
The 2008 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) will be held in Cowichan, British Columbia, Canada. The 2008 NAIG will welcome more than 6,000 Aboriginal athletes, coaches and managers from across North America.
Since its inception, the NAIG has grown to become the largest multi-sport and cultural youth games hosted in Canada. The NAIG is a fundamental component of the Aboriginal sport movement as it has effected positive change in the health and well being of Aboriginal peoples across Canada. It is the primary vehicle for Indigenous youth sport development at the grassroots to provincial/territorial levels.
