MASRC: A History of Excellence Book Launch

September 23, 2021

We are excited to announce the launch of this book that we celebrated at The Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Sam Laskaris, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, wrote:

The Manitoba Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Council has produced a book titled "A History of Excellence - The Untold Stories Of Manitoba's Indigenous Sport."

It is written by Winnipeg author Scott Taylor and Carriera Lamoureux, MASRC's sport for social development manager.

Janice Forsyth, a member of Fisher River Cree Nation in Manitoba and leading Indigenous sports historian, wrote the introduction for the 312-page book.

Forsyth said MASRC officials realized detailing Indigenous sporting history was a practical use of their time when pandemic restrictions shut down public gatherings, including sporting events.
