Native Releaf Presents The World’s Fastest Native American & Paleface:

40-yard Dash Contest & Basketball Free Throw Contest for All Age Groups

June 25, 2016 - Are you the fastest thing on two feet on your Rez or city? Are you simply interested in participating in a health and wellness event? Or maybe just have some fun and learn about CBD?

Join NATIVE RELEAF at the MOHAWK INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY (313 Frogtown Road, Hogansburg, NY 13655, Akwesasne Mohawk Territory) on Saturday, August 13th 2016 from NOON to 5:00PM or when finished (rain or shine) for the 2016 WORLD’S FASTEST NATIVE AMERICAN & PALEFACE CONTEST. Admission is $10.00 and includes entry into both contests. Each additional contest attempt is $5.00. Food and drinks will be available! Come for the contests, stay for the show! Tickets will be on sale at the door.

 

Why should you join us? To learn about Native Releaf and CBD, meet an eight-time National Football League Pro Bowler and to become the 2016 WORLD’S FASTEST NATIVE AMERICAN & PALEFACE (with winners getting award and picture in local news outlets). See rules for more information.

Ten total championship titles will be awarded. The World’s Fastest Native American has five categories of awards given for the following groups: (1) Woman, (2) Elder 55 years and older, (3) Man, (4) (5) Boys and Girls 17 years and under. The “Paleface” category will include the same five categories and prizes. The term “Paleface” is used in jest and is defined as any person who does not consider himself or herself Native American, American Indian, First Nations, indigenous or aboriginal.

The 40-yard dash will be timed via a non-biased, sophisticated system and will be judged by former Buffalo Bills eight-time consecutive NFL All-Pro Ruben Brown among others. Mr. Brown will also be available for pictures and autographs. Native Releaf is donating a percentage of all proceeds from the event to Native American charity or charities. For those who prefer to participate in a less rigorous event, Native Releaf is also presenting the 2016 WORLD’S BEST NATIVE AMERICAN & PALEFACE BASKETBALL FREE THROW CONTEST where ten titles will be awarded.

Who is the fastest Native in the world? Who has the hottest hand on the Rez? Could be you! For early registration options, please visit the Mohawk Internatonal Raceway any week day morning and every Friday during the races up until the day of the contest. Admission to this event is FREE and open to EVERYONE!
