Brett ‘Hitman’ Hart’s was inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2021. Bret is a close friend and supporter of Siksika Health Services and the public celebration to honour Bret on Sept. 12 will include a special recognition of our friendship.
Each inductee into Canada’s Walk of Fame receives $10,000 to donate to charity and Hart has selected to evenly divide the money between the our SN7 youth program and Water First, an organization dedicated to providing sustainable access to safe, clean water in Indigenous communities in Canada.
Siksika SN7 is a group of youth and young adults who provide peer-to-peer support, programs and activities for other youth and young adults in Siksika Nation, and beyond. SN7 promotes healthy lifestyles, including support and skill-building in physical fitness and physical literacy, recreational activities, essential skills, mental wellness, and culture.
The hometown ceremony will be held at 11:45 a.m. on Sept. 12 at the Victoria Pavilion, located at 1800 Stampede Trail S.E., near the south entrance to the Stampede grounds.
Monday’s ceremony, which is free to attend, is scheduled to include traditional drumming from Siksika’s Sorrel Rider Drum Group, a blessing from Siksika Elder Clement Leather, and performances of the national anthem, as well as a song dedicated to Hart, by 15-year-old Kaiya Gamble.
