Inuit and Dene Games

For the first time, the Inuit and Dene games are being included as part of the 2007 Canada Winter Games held in Whitehorse. We follow two groups of athletes competing in both the Inuit and Dene Games, showing their cultural significance while re vealing the skill and agility required to compete in these amazing events. A dramatic finale ensues when two sisters-Robyn and Shawna McLeod, end up competing against each other for the gold medal at the Women's Stick Pull competition.
