Warrior Screening

“The remarkable Nipissing Warriors hockey team played from 1965 – 1975. Few could have imagined their success or popularity when community members began pushing for an all-Anishinaabe team to play in the all-white, predominantly Francophone, Industrial League in Sturgeon Falls in the 1960s.” If you missed it in the Spring or want to catch a second viewing, The Warriors documentary will be shown throughout the day in F213.
