The Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) Blazers debut Treaty One inspired uniforms for the 2021-22 Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) basketball home opener (women and men teams) on Friday, November 5 against Providence University College (PUC) Pilots.
Earlier this season, CMU unveiled Treaty One uniforms at the conference volleyball home opener on October 29 versus Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) Les Rouges.
From a CMU press story: The uniforms were designed by Indigenous artist Amber Green and feature floral patterns and “Treaty One Territory,” along with other words and symbols connected to the treaty.
“It is a uniform that will spark deep and meaningful conversations,” said CMU’s Athletic Director Russell Willms. “By wearing these uniforms, we seek to honour treaty and the first peoples of these lands, and it is our hope that these uniforms will help facilitate meaningful dialogue.”
