CBC | Radio-Canada (Eng) Our Games: The Arctic Winter Games

Every year since 1970, athletes from around the circumpolar world have gathered for a week of friendly competition, camaraderie and cultural exhibition. This documentary profiles five athletes competing in the 2000 Arctic Winter Games – sports that have their origin in the Inuit and Dene culture. Teams from Canada, Alaska, Greenland and Russia gather for the week to compete in traditional sports like high-kick, the snow snake, the sledge jump and the knuckle-hop.
