The CRRF congratulates Waneek Horn-Miller!

The CRRF congratulates Waneek Horn-Miller!
Wanneek Horn-Miller to be inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame

"When one Indigenous person achieves, we all succeed," -Waneek Horn-Miller With the recent announcement that Horn-Miller will be inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, it’s safe to say Canada’s Indigenous athletes are all succeeding right now.

Receiving Canada's highest sporting honour is a reminder, however, that more work is needed to improve opportunities for Indigenous youth in sport nationwide.

"It's a huge honour," said Horn-Miller, who is from Kahnawake, Quebec. Horn-Miller is the first Mohawk woman to compete in the Olympics, and will she be the first water polo player to be inducted to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame this fall.

“Canada will only reach its greatest potential when our indigenous people are allowed to reach our fullest potential”, she said.

The CRRF congratulates Waneek on yet another astounding achievement – she represents her sport, her nation and all of us with pride, courage and hounour.

For more information on Waneek Horn-Miller, please see our Canada 150 profile on this trail-blazing athlete and advocate.
