Inuit Games, also known as Arctic Sports, are a collection of Indigenous games based on hunting and survival skills of the north. The games trained both physical and mental abilities that allowed the indigenous people of Alaska, Canada, Greenland and Chukotka to thrive in the Arctic for millennia. Today athletes from across the Arctic and beyond carry on the tradition of the games in events such as Native Youth Olympics, World Eskimo-Indian Olympic, and Arctic Winter Games.

Kyle Kaayák’w Worl is an award winning Arctic Sports athlete and coach currently residing in Juneau, Alaska. He is Tlingit of the Lukaax̲.ádi clan, Deg Hit’an and Yup’ik. Over his 10 year career in the sport he has won over 70 medals, traveling from Alaska to Greenland to compete in various events. Along with training and coaching year round in Alaska, Kyle travels across the world to demonstrate Arctic Sports, including the Riddu Riddu Festival in Northern Norway, Orenda Art International Gallery in Paris, and Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

Kyle will teach five sessions throughout the weekend. Advanced registration to reserve your spot will be available soon. You can watch a video here that describes the history and technique of Innuit Games.
