On November 5-7, 2010 Motivate Canada and CAAWS, the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity, brought together community program leaders and youth involved with Motivate Canada’s Active Circle initiative and CAAWS’ Aboriginal On the Move project for a digital storytelling workshop. The Active Circle supports Aboriginal youth and communities to become vibrant, active and healthy through sport and recreation. CAAWS’ Aboriginal On the Move project supports the development and implementation of sport and physical activity programs for Aboriginal girls and young women. Participants, who came from a variety of communities across Canada, were asked to share a story about the impact of sport and physical activity in their life, the life of someone they know, or in their community. The result was a collection of stories that speak to the power of sport and physical activity in how we define ourselves and create our community.
