The All Native Basketball Tournament is upon Prince Rupert for the 57th time this week.
The event has proven time and time again, that even if you don’t like basketball, there is enough culture, food, tradition, history and socializing to be jam-packed into the civic centre for seven days in February.
And heck, while you’re there, you might even develop a fondness for the sport itself, with the unbelievably talented athletes, who have trained all year to be in the games and represent their village, showing off their stuff.
The intense drama that emerged in last year’s finals in every division was evident through unique storylines (Bella Bella women’s first title, Metlakatla, AK intermediates upsetting favourite Skidegate and the Senior Saints winning their fourth straight). Come watch what the 2016 saga has in store this week.
