Arctic Winter Games
Today, in recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day, SIRC kicks off a new blog series about the Arctic Winter Games which will be hosted in Whitehorse, Yukon March 15-21, 2020. Today’s post focuses on the initial development of the Games, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2020. Subsequent posts will explore various aspects of the Games, from its role in celebrating Indigenous culture and in northern sport development, to the logistics of hosting in a northern remote community.
