North American Indigenous
Games CEO Glen Pratt, former George Gordon First Nation chief, has stepped down
amidst allegations of harassment. Complaints were filed against Pratt with
NAIG’s human resources committee in early February. “The board acknowledges the
seriousness of the complaints and wants to assure its partners, funders,
stakeholders, staff and the public that the matter is being thoroughly
investigated by an independent firm that specializes in human resource related
matters,” said the board in a news release. Federation of Saskatchewan Indian
Nations vice-chief Dutch Lerat said an outside body will investigate the
claims, which is expected to take four to six weeks. The games will take place
in Regina from July 20 to July 27.
