Back in January, we had Canadian National Men's Indoor team member Dallas Soonias on our podcast.  At the time, Dallas was playing for his Chinese club team and we caught up with him over Skype.  We talked about his Native ancestry and asked if he would be interested in doing a clinic for Native Canadians and he expressed his excitement to do something like that.

After that show, we were contacted by a woman named Holly.  Holly lives in the Labrador coastal community of Makkovik and is a huge volleyball fan and listener of our podcast.  Makkovik has a large Innuit community as well as a big love for the sport of volleyball.  Holly put in months of hard work to bring Dallas up to Makkovik.  Below are some photos of his trip. We also have a link to a CBC morning show interview with Holly and Dallas.
