The 7G Foundation, in partnership with the Minnesota Vikings, will host the 4th Indigenous Bowl at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, December 5 kicking off at 10 am. Players are now in the Twin Cities for practices and team-building activities. Admission for the game is free of charge. The game will be streamed by School Space Media at www.prepspotlight.tv/MSHSL/GameStream/13646.
Schedule information regarding the Indigenous Bowl is available at www.IndigenousBowl.com.
The game began in 2017 and creates opportunities for Native American athletes to compete at a high level, instills the values needed for multigenerational change and develops the next generation of leaders in their communities. Indigenous Bowl players are chosen to compete in the game through an application process open to members of federally recognized tribes across the United States.
“We are extremely thankful for the hospitality the NFL and Vikings have shown us and will be looking to build upon our partnership for the future,” said 7G Foundation Board Member Michael Stopp. “The NFL is dedicated to create more opportunities for our Native America youth to be successful and this is only the start to something big. Indigenous Bowl rosters are set with all Native American and First Nations high school seniors ready to take the field one last time to showcase their talent. Players from all over Indian Country representing over 30 different tribes and communities. Traveling out of state will be a first-time experience for many.”
The 7G Foundation’s vision is to focus on building a more modern education system for our Indian Country and our Indigenous Communities, fundamentally incorporating the power of technology to forge a brighter future. The Foundation promotes an education that teaches the depth of our deep history, using that knowledge to create economic mobility, community development, and multi-generational change for all Indigenous people.
