About Northern Games
The traditional Northern Games originate from the time when the Inuvialuit were still semi-nomadic and are played for both fun and survival, developing strength, endurance, and resistance to pain, or when groups from different areas visited.
Today, the annual Northern Games keeps the traditions of celebration, gathering, and sharing alive.
