Indigenous women on the soccer field

Mohawk teens will be representing Canada at the World Indigenous games

A group of female Mohawk soccer players will be representing Canada on the world stage at the World Indigenous games in Brazil next month.

Eight players hailing from Kahnawake will join the rest of the team, with players mainly based in Vancouver, in a few week’s time. They’re excited to head to Brazil and hope to have a lot of fun, along with playing hard and making their friends and family back home proud.

“I love the sport and I'm playing for fun, so as long as I'm with my teammates and having a good time, that will be enough for me,” Rachel Leborgne, 18, told CTV News.
