Arctic sports at Aboriginal Day 2012: The ear pull!

One of the many games played on aborignal day. This one is a lot more about pain tolerance than athletic ability.

Connect two players’ ears with a loop of string, and then pull. Winner is the last to give up.


Arctic Sports: Preparing for the Arctic Winter Games in Whitehorse

The Arctic Winter Games are coming up and they include arctic sports. Games like the one-foot high kick, two-foot high kick, Alaskan high-kick, the airplane, etc.

These photos were taken at the recent tryouts held in Inuvik at Sie Alexandre Mackenzie School.

Happy Aboriginal Day 2011

Good news! I thought I had lost these photos of Aboriginal Day in late June.

The annual BBQ and games day is always a highlight of living in Inuvik.

By the way, this summer has been remarkably mosquito-free.
