Save the Date! ‘We Are Hockey’ Opening Reception at the Sikh Heritage Museum

The South Asian Studies Institute  is inviting everyone for the next exhibit at the Sikh Heritage Museum titled ‘We Are Hockey.’ The exhibit is a vibrant counter-narrative to the commonly held assumption that ice hockey is a ‘whites only’ sport. The exhibition highlight the contributions of peoples of colour across Canada who have played critical roles in shifting the invisible boundaries within the sport. We are grateful to Dr. Courtney Szto, whose PhD research has helped shape the exhibit.

 The opening reception on Friday, March 29th beginning at 5pm includes an opening address by Dr. Joanne Maclean, President and Vice-Chancellor at UFV. The reception will also feature your chance to meet with two Hockey Night Punjabi commentators, Randip Janda and Harnarayan Singh. Please do keep an eye out on our Instagram and social  media pages (@ufvsasi) for updates.

 All are welcome to attend. Please feel free to share this save the date with others. For any additional questions please connect with
