To begin, ask students what "positive sportsmanship" could look like. Possible answers may include giving teammates encouragement or shaking hands with the opposing team at the end of the game. Next, ask students if they can name the Seven Sacred Teachings, according to Anishinaabe (or other Indigenous nation) worldview. If possible, it is encouraged to invite a local Elder or Knowl- edge teacher into the class to give a nation-specific teaching, if applicable in your region. Alternatively, you can review pages 10-14 of the "Seven Grandfather Teachings: Character Devel- opment" together as a class, found at: https://rover.edonline.sk.ca/system/guides/R054842.pdf Next, show students the YouTube video "Top 10 Moments of Olympic Sporting Spirit" here: https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SuKNmLBOpE . After each example in the video, stop and ask stu- dents which of the seven sacred teachings was demonstrated. Debrief the video by asking students which instance of positive sportsmanship stood out to them and why. Inform them that next, they are going to learn from Indigenous sports role model, Richard Pellissier-Lush. Lesson Plan
