The BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum created the Indigenous Sport Gallery as a tribute to the Indigenous athletes, coaches, and builders that have been historically overlooked despite making significant contributions to BC Sport History. The Digital Indigenous Sport Gallery was created to increase the accessibility of the physical gallery in hopes of sharing these stories and accomplishments to more British Columbians and Canadians.

The BC Sports Hall of Fame opened the Indigenous Sport Gallery (ISG) on September 25, 2018. The ISG was created to expand on the stories featured in the Hall’s Aboriginal Sport Gallery, which opened in 2008, and in hopes to help advance the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #87.
