Events during Aboriginal Awareness Week in Calgary for 2022

What are Indigenous Handgames?

Handgames are a culturally based competition that have been played for centuries by Indigenous Peoples across North America. Two teams of roughly 5 to 10 players sit across from each other in a line. While traditional drumming and music is played, one team works to hide objects in their hands, passing them between team members while the opposing team has to guess where the objects are hidden. 

The object of the game is to guess correctly so your team wins all the hidden objects.
