This past Saturday afternoon, the University of Winnipeg Wesmen, along with the University of Winnipeg Aboriginal Student Council celebrated the first Wesmen Indigenous Day as part of the Winnipeg vs Brandon Basketball action.

The event had a traditional blessing and smudge from an Elder for both Wesmen teams prior to their repective games. The celebration featured traditional drumming and honoured Indigenous culture with music and dancing throughout the afternoon.

The University of Winnipeg Wesmen would like to thank everyone involved in making this special afternoon possible
