A History of Excellence
Only available in English.
From the back cover:
"A History of Excellence is a celebration of Indigenous talent, success, and resilience in sport. My love for the game of basketball was met with a sense of community and acceptance that made me feel like I belonged. This book is a history of belonging, a story of the continued impact Indigenous Peoples have on the world of sport in Manitoba." - Kevin Chief, Chief Partnerships Manitoba Inc., former member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba
"This is a great read. Not enough people know the stories of Manitoba's greatest Indigenous athletes, coaches and builders and this collection should change that. These stories that have been hidden too long and it's time they were told. What a great book." - Mike Sutherland, Special Projects Director, Peguis First Nation, MASRC Board Member
"After interviewing over 100 of Manitoba's finest Indigenous Athletes, coaches and builders, Lamoureux and Taylor introduce us to Excellence - conversations with well known greats such as Keeper, Larocque, Jones, Asham, Fleury, Lacquette, Chalmers, including an introduction to Mathez, Darbyshire-McRorie, Flett, Hunt, Roulette and many more. A refreshing and exciting resource to have in your library!" - Mel Whiteshell, Executive Director of MASRC
