RCMP officer joins the Inuvialuit Drum Dance in Aklavik

Here’s officer Mike Peters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who is stationed in Aklavik. During a celebration and Inuvialuit Drum Dance, he revealed he’s been spending some time with the dancers.

Officer Peters performed a short dance to uproars of laughter and applause. He knew the moves!

The Drummers and Dancers’ routines tell stories. For instance one dance is about seagulls pestering seals on a beach. Another goes through the motions of gathering, chopping, and stacking firewood.
