1995 AGT March of Champions Torch Relay -  As a part of the legacy from the 1995 Canada Winter Games, a time capsule was created to capture the spirit of the games as the AGT March of Champions torch travelled through 16 communities in Alberta with each community contributing an item to the time capsule along with a community signed AGT Spirit of Alberta Ribbon. 

The capsule was sealed and given to the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in trust to be opened the next time a Canada Games was held in Alberta. Come see some of the items from the time capsule on display.

Our Feature Book:

To Run With Longboat: Twelve Stories of Indian Athletes in Canada

This fantastic compellation features the stories of 12 Canadian Indian athletes whose hard work, dedication, and success in their sports are an inspiration to the youth of today. The stories are all told in the format of traditional oral storytelling. The stories are all based in fact and well researched, but the contributors and editors were permitted to take some freedom in interpretation and invent where necessary, making this intriguing book a true work of docufiction.

This book has special ties to the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum as it features Honoured Member Jim Gladstone and Honoured Member J. Wilton Littlechild who wrote the forward.
