Traditional games pt.3: The airplane

Can you do this difficult stunt?

Lie face down, with arms outstretched and legs together. Then, get three friends to carry you forwards. (You are not allowed to touch the floor, so you need strong arms and shoulders.)


Ambulance in Tsiigehtchic

It’s a 114km drive from Tsiigehtchic to Inuvik Regional Hospital, so I am guessing something serious was happening here.

Inuvik’s welcome sign

If you’ve driven up the Dempster Highway, odds are you’re happy to see this sign.

The R.C

Everyone in Tsiigehtchic calls the old Roman Catholic church “The R.C. Church.”

This teacher went from Toronto (pop.4 million) to Tsiigehthic (pop.150)

Isn’t Canada an amazingly diverse country? It’s strange to think that Tsiigehtchic and Toronto are are both represented by the same parliament.

Respecting the elders

This display at Tsiigehtchic’s Chief Paul Niditchie School is a really nice gesture. It recognizes all the elders in the community.

Looks like this raven is also the town traffic cop.
