Overview

The events at the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics — like the Four Man Carry and the Knuckle Hop — won’t be familiar to most Americans in the Lower 48. But they are both rooted in traditional Eskimo culture and pure Americana. “The native games, they keep us going every single year, and it’s something fun. We are connecting Western civilization with our ancestry,” one of the athletes explains.
