Abstract: The following discussion is one of the five thought-provoking dialogues in the Sport and Society series (February 8th-March 15th 2010) featuring Olympic and Paralympic athletes who have used their celebrity to make a difference in the world. The series was hosted by Intellectual Muscle: University Dialogues for the Vancouver 2010 Games, developed by Vancouver 2010 and the University of British Columbia, in collaboration with universities across Canada and The Globe and Mail. Abstract: Aboriginal inclusion and participation in the Olympics have historically been ceremonial and cultural. Are there still bureaucratic, financial and social barriers preventing talented aboriginal athletes from participating in the Games? How do we overcome these barriers? Waneek shares the story of her journey and how she helps others to achieve their own dreams through sport. A panel discussion with invited participants follows her presentation. Audio only (mp3) and video recording (mp4) available.
