The Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) established the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC) in 2002 to serve as the premiere competition for young Aboriginal hockey players in Canada. It provides a forum for elite Bantam/Midget aged Aboriginal male and female youth and attracts participation from First Nations, Inuit, and Metis across thirteen provinces and territories. This annual event helps foster cultural unity and pride to celebrate the athletic abilities of Aboriginal athletes from across the country.
All competitors in the NAHC must be of Aboriginal ancestry, those who do not own an Indian Status Card, an Inuit Identification Card, or a Provincial Métis Card – must complete the Declaration and Ancestral Chart that will provide a detailed and verifiable account of your ancestry.
