NHAC 2008 (larger version)
The NAHC is geared towards raising awareness of aboriginal hockey in Canada as well as giving aboriginal youth an opportunity to showcase their talent on the national stage. The tournament featured Bantam and Midget aged male and female aboriginal athletes.
This is an opportunity for young bantam and midget Aboriginal hockey stars to showcase their talents and participate against other provincial and territorial hockey teams. The NAHC promotes spiritual, cultural, and physical development of young Aboriginals through a healthy active lifestyle. ..................................................................................................

Introduction
The Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) was established to promote personal excellence through sport and to support the holistic development of Aboriginal athletes and coaches. As a program of the ASC, the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships reflect those priorities while serving as the premier competition for minor level Aboriginal hockey in Canada.

The National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC) provide a forum for elite Bantam/Midget age Aboriginal hockey players, which attracts participation from First Nations, Inuit and Metis within each of the thirteen provinces and territories of Canada. The long-term vision for the NAHC is to establish a competitive structure that will serve as the impetus for grassroots and regional Aboriginal hockey development. The event will help foster cultural unity and pride and celebrate the athletic abilities of Aboriginal athletes from across the country.
Indigenous youth from Newfoundland Labrador have competed at the NAHC with Team Atlantic since 2010.
