The NRNC youth boys basketball team travelled to the Hershey Centre in Mississauga to watch the Raptors 905 vs Grand Rapids. The Grand Rapids team have two Native Americans playing on their team Bronson Koenig #3 (Ho-Chunk Nation) & Derek Willis #33 (Araphao Tribe). The game was great (even though the Rapids lost), following the game we had the opportunity to meet and talk with Derek & Bronson, along with the Hamilton Regional Indian Centre boys b-ball team. Was a great experience for all of our youth to talk,
To mark National Housing Day, dozens of people from the public sector, private sector, government and non-profit groups gathered at the Niagara Regional Native Centre on Airport Road to explore how new housing developments can be streamlined.
It was a nice day out for a flag raising at NRNC. Niagara Regional Métis Council Chair Brain Kon and Niagara Regional Native Centre Cultural Resource Coordinator Phil Davis raised the Métis Nation of Ontario flag together with a Haudenosaunee Unity Flag in honour of Louis Riel Day. Also in attendance for the flag raising were Métis Citizen and Niagara Regional Police Officer Mitch Dumont, Urban Aboriginal Healthy Living Coordinator Blue Hill and NRNC Executive Director Mitch Baird and several NRNC members.

We traveled to Sault Ste. Marie this past weekend to participate in the Ontario Native Basketball Invitational tournament held in Sault Ste Marie. Teams all across Ontario competed in this high caliber tournament, teams came from as far as Moose Factory.
Majority of this team is 16&17yrs old and never even played organized basketball and it was our first time playing together as a team but yet they went into this tournament making a name for themselves.
