Inuit Games at the Northern Labrador Sportsmeet Competitions - Julie Dicker

Part of:
5:15 PM, Friday 4 Oct 2019 (30 minutes)
Six schools along the North Coast of Labrador from the communities of Nain, Natuashish, Hopedale, Postville, Makkovik and Rigolet compete at 2 Sportsmeets within the school year. The Fall Sportsmeet takes place in September and the Winter Sportsmeet takes place in February/March. Each school selects 12 athletes to compete at the Fall Sportsmeet and 6 athletes to compete in the Winter Sportsmeet. Communities rotate yearly in hosting the Sportsmeets. The Fall Sportsmeet events include Volleyball, X-Country Running, Table Tennis, Archery and Inuit Games. The Winter Sportsmeet events include Ball Hockey, Badminton, X-Country Skiing, Outdoor Soccer, Labrathon and Inuit Games. In both Sportsmeets, the Inuit Games incorporate the most team points and is the leading crowd pleaser. Since the original Sportsmeet in 1979, some of the Inuit Games performed at the Sportsmeets have been modified and changed with time. I would like to present each of the Inuit Games as they are currently performed and judged at the Sportsmeets. In doing so, I will hopefully be given an opportunity to

collaborate with fellow Inuit from the Arctic regions to discuss similarities and differences in Inuit Games
