A status Indian man barred from an All Native sports tournament by a controversial 'blood quantum' dictum has now been reinstated with a public apology and an end to racialized rules.

Josiah Wilson, 21, a point guard with Bella Bella's Heiltsuk Wolf Pack team, plans to suit up for the next All Native Basketball Tournament in February 2018.
