Cet article explore l'apprehension complexe du sport chez les femmes autochtones. Il examine particulierement les dimensions genrees qui pesent dans leur quete de reconnaissance et de support pour leur travail et leur engagement benevole au sein de leur communaute, la ou leur contribution est a la fois est manifeste et omnipresente. Pour plusieurs Autochtones, il n'y aurait pas d'activites sportives si ce n'etait du travail des femmes. Nous avons constate qu'au coeur de leurs luttes, leurs aspirations les plus cheres depassent de loin des considerations strictement feminines et s'orientent vers des preoccupations plus larges, liees a la sante et au bien-etre des membres de leur communaute, dont notamment les jeunes. In this paper, we explore complex ways in which Aboriginal women experience sport. In particular, we examine the gendered dimensions they face in trying to gain recognition and support for their work and volunteering at the community level where their presence is ubiquitous and tangible: sport would not exist for many Aboriginal people if it were not for female labour. What we saw, at the heart of their struggles, are deeply held aspirations that go well beyond 'women only' issues to broader concerns tied to the health and wellbeing of the people in their community, specifically the youth.
