The Sagkeeng Oldtimers hockey team was inducted into the North American Indigenous Athletics Hall of Fame (NAIAHF) at a banquet in Green Bay, Wis., last weekend.

The team, made up of players ranging in age from 35 to over 50, was based in Sagkeeng First Nation, about 100 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg. It was active for over two decades, playing tournaments through the Canadian Oldtimers Hockey Association in the U.S., Europe and Canada.

NAIAHF says the team qualified for the induction because they won the national cup in 1987. 

Ken Young, who is from Opaskwayak Cree Nation in Manitoba but has been in Sagkeeng “for forever,” played with the team for 20 years. He attended the banquet in Green Bay and said it was fun.

“The joking around and the teasing was back, like the way it was,” he said.
