The Cree Nation Bears

5 minutes

A deep-rooted passion for hockey draws young and talented players from all over the nine James Bay Cree communities to play for THE BEARS, a Cree Nation hockey team, based in Mistissini, Quebec. THE BEARS face many challenges that go beyond competition, from cultural barriers to the great distances between games in North, but their fighting spirit and natural connection to the ice make them a competitor like no other.

Playing: Friday, November 25 | 1:30pm
