Northern Games

July
A showcase for traditional Inuit and Indian sports and culture, the Northern Games are held in the Northwest Territories of Canada in July each year. They feature traditional dances, drumming competitions, arts and crafts displays, and the "Good Woman" Contest, which gives Northern women a chance to demonstrate their skill in such areas as animal skinning and bannock baking. The games are held in Inuvik and draw competitors from Alaska, Yukon Territory, and Labrador as well.
