ITO is excited to support the upcoming Toronto Maple Leaf Alumni Puck Drops in Wikwemikong First Nation and Taykwa Tagamou Nation.  Toronto Maple Leaf legends Rick Vaive, Ric Nattress, and Shane Corson, among many other heavy hitters, will hit the ice this October in two star-studded alumni games supported by Indigenous Tourism Ontario hosted by Wikwemikong Tourism and Taykwa Tagamou Nation. 

First, join ITO and the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni Association as they face off in a historic alumni game in Wikwemikong First Nation at the Thunderdome Arena. This monumental game is on October 29th, 2022, at 7 pm, hosted by Wikwemikong Tourism, a local nature-based cultural tourism organization that showcases an array of authentic Indigenous experiences on Manitoulin Island. With the Toronto Maple Leaf Alumni facing off against local players, this game will be a historic match building relationships through sport while embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Second, the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni Association will be on the road to Taykwa Tagamou Nation as they host the second alumni game at the Tim Horton Events Centre in Cochrane on October 30th, at 5 pm. Taykwa Tagamou Nation is Mushkegowuk Cree community whose Traditional Territory and Treaty Lands are in the southern portion of the James Bay watershed in northeastern Ontario, within the area of Treaty 9. 

ITO is honoured to support such a momentous game in tandem with Wikwemikong Tourism and Taykwa Tagamou Nation, symbolizing the future of Indigenous sport tourism in Ontario with the puck drop.
