First Nations Wellness Journey

First Nations people enjoy a long and rich history in sports, physical activity, and fitness. Physical activity has the ability to empower, motivate, and inspire people contributing to the development of healthy, confident, and resilient First Nations communities. 

Active Spirit, Active History: A Culture of sports, activity and well-being among BC First Nations was created by the First Nations Health Council to share stories of First Nations people who have triumphed, mentored, or lead the way by living a healthy lifestyle through both traditional and non-traditional activities.

By sharing their experiences and stories, we can see their connection with our heritage and traditions which relied on the ability to be active. We feel these ordinary everyday champions of health are embracing their Active Spirit and honouring their Active History.
