It’s the Muskrat Jamboree!

b-guests-of-honour.jpg This weekend marks the 51st annual Muskrat Jamboree in Inuvik. There was a drum dance last night and there will be plenty of games throughout the weekend.Here is the opening ceremony, where the cake was cut by guests of honour Mary Evik Ruben and Victor Allen. (I believe the cake was made by young people at the Youth Centre.)

  4. … greetings from Whitby, Ontario.
    … a dear friend and sister by heart, Freda Wilson, mentioned the Muskrat Jamboree in a recent e-mail and I happened upon this fabulous site in an effort to learn more about the festivities. Kudos to the webmaster and bloggers; this site is not only informative but it provides a forum for those who have loved ones in Inuvik to feel ‘connected’ and an opportunity to celebrate along with them in spirit … a very Happy 51st Muskrat Jamboree to all! Enjoy! Cheerio, Faith

  5. … forgive a second post, but I just heard back from my dear friend, Freda, who advised that she shall be attending the feast this evening with none other than Mary Evik Rueben depicted in the photograph above … this site is amazing!
