Fun 101: Inuit Games

Laughter and fun never go out of style. Watch these Inuit youth demonstrate their traditional games that have stood the test of time.

Inuit students hold a friendly competition of traditional games such as the One-Foot High Kick, The Leg Wrestle, The Muskox as well as an increasingly fast-paced dance that was sung by the women to tire out the boys when their fathers went out hunting. Catch these talented teens as they jump, dance and of course perform Throat Singing, which originated from mothers soothing their babies in their Amauti.

To see more, watch the episode Inuk School Days in WIOT TV Season 3 on APTN.
