    Manitobans enshrined in North American Indigenous Athletics Hall of Fame

    A pair of Manitobans were immortalized among the best Indigenous athletes ever last week. Theodore Niizhotay Fontaine (Anishinaabe) and Jayme Menzies (Métis) were enshrined into the North American Indigenous Athletics Hall of Fame on Feb. 1. Fontaine who died May 10, 2021, was inducted into the media/athlete category for his contributions as a hockey player, Chief, Elder, author, educator and public speaker. Before playing senior and semi-professional hockey in the Detroit Red Wings organization (an opportunity he gave up on due to overt racism) Fontaine survived 12 years in residential schools, where he experienced sexual, physical, emotional and spiritual abuse.
