Two Bella Coola athletes were a part of Team BC’s big winnings at the Regina 2014 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG). BC brought home the most medals out of any province, 160 in total. Just behind BC was Saskatchewan with 159 and Ontario with 149.

Braden Tallio and Tamika Tallio were each part of Team BC’s basketball squad, competing in Male U-14 and Female U-16 respectively. Braden’s team brought home the bronze and Tamika’s team the silver. Both athletes had to work hard to make the team, going through several days of trials to win their spots.

Regina 2014 NAIG hosted over 6000 participants from 26 regions across North America who competed in 14 events from archery to wrestling, cheered along with their friends and family. There were over 10,000 people sharing the same passion and involvement during this amazing experience. Braden enjoyed the experience immensely, recalling that Regina was very flat and there was a tornado warning the first night they arrived!
