Indigenous Bowl provides showcase for promising Native athletes


December 19, 2022

Student-athletes representing dozens of tribes played at U.S. Bank Stadium Sunday in the fifth annual Indigenous Bowl. The game is part of an effort to highlight athletic talent from schools that might otherwise escape the notice of college recruiters.

The players — all high school seniors — split into two teams designated by red and white jerseys, and took to the field after a coin toss by U.S. Sen. Tina Smith. Hundreds of friends and family cheered them on from the stands.

Just after stepping off the field at halftime, Gaabi Boucha of Warroad High School said it was a thrill to play on NFL turf.
