TRIBAL GAMING IN CANADA

During their exploratory voyages for shorter travelling routes to Asia from the west of Europe, European explorers, dating back to the times of John Cabot, Jacques Cartier, Martin Frobisher and Samuel de Champlain, to name a few, fell upon foreign land – Canada. It was at this time that these famous explorers met and interacted with the native people already living there, the Aboriginals, also known as Canada’s First Nations.

Aboriginal peoples traded furs and shared their cultures and traditions – their way of living; this included hunting, fishing and some of their activities to pass the time, such as sport and high stakes gambling.by Cory R. Levi
