  22. Playing Dog Soldier and many other Indigenous games with Heather and Trevor in the quad. Dog Soldier was played against other tribes as a way of not injuring opponents in a time of peace as a method of keeping and maintaining your warrior skills. ~ Kristin Flattery #umstudent #umindigenous #umorientation #umstudenttakeover #umanitoba #umtakeover
  23. Indigenous Games are being played in the Quad as apart of our Indigenous Celebration Stations event. Come play dog soldier and other First Nations games that were played in a time of peace. Disputes among tribes were even solved through games of Lacrosse, a game invented by our First Nation people's, or other games. ~ Kristin Flattery
