The Arctic Winter Games (AWG) is currently underway in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The event began on March 15 and runs until March 22.
For those not familiar with the Games, the AWG is one of the circumpolar world’s most important sport events. Athletes from regions all over the North compete in everything from hockey and volleyball, to dog mushing and Dene games.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has sent a whole team to cover the games and set up an Arctic Winter Games micro-site that’s filled with event stats, athlete profiles and feature stories.
It’s so rare to have cultural events unting northerners from Russia, Greenland, Alaska, Canada and Sapmi all in one place, so the site is well worth checking out!
