Indigenous hockey team that endured racist taunts 'overwhelmed' by response to story

A First Nations team involved in an ugly incident at a tournament in Quebec City last month, says they're "overwhelmed" by the response to the story and hope to create a movement to rid hockey of racism.

The First Nation Elites, a Quebec team of high-level Indigenous hockey players from several Cree, Innu, Mi'kmaq, Algonquin and Atikamekw communities, say they were subjected to racial taunts, mock war cries and tomahawk chops from some of the other players and spectators at a bantam AAA tournament in late May.
