Reconciliation Speaker Series with Fred Sasakamoose

Fred Sasakamoose was the first Aboriginal hockey player from Canada to play in the National Hockey League (NHL) and the first NHL player with treaty status. A former student of St. Michael’s Indian Residential School in Duck Lake, Sask., Fred played 11 games for the Chicago Black Hawks in the 1953–54 NHL season.

Since retiring from competitive hockey in 1961, Fred has been dedicated to encouraging youth through sports involvement.

His presentation entails a powerful story of his incredible journey to the NHL while surviving residential school.

This is the first event in Lakeland College’s four-part Reconciliation Speaker Series.
