Move and Play through Traditional Games
The Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association (ANFCA) and the Be Fit For Life Network collaborated on Move and Play through Traditional Games to integrate the promotion of physical activity through playing traditional Indigenous games.
The resources are designed to support the sharing of these games with children, youth, and families. The games link traditional culture and values to physical literacy and fundamental movement skills. Use these cards and lesson plans to communicate the history and culture of traditional games and note how the skills and values are still important today.
We wish to acknowledge the guidance, teachings and time commitment shared by the ANFCA Elders’ Wisdom Circle in the development and review of the traditional games cards and traditional games lesson plans.
