More than 20 Aboriginal basketball teams from around B.C. and Alberta are expected to turn out for the second Native Basketball Tournament/Festival at SFU’s Burnaby campus on May 20-22, 2016. Last year’s event attracted hundreds of spectators, and organizers expect this year’s event will be equally popular. Aboriginal entertainment, food, crafts vendors, and elders will all once again be a part of the festivities. The tournament is a community partnership between SFU, FNSA and the Native Education College.
