WEIO

Contested with a unique spirit, the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics is part sporting event and part cultural festival, its games emblematic of the north’s way of life stretching back thousands of years. Athletes compete in the two-foot high kick, knuckle hop, ear weight, Eskimo stick pull, blanket toss and other events each summer for four days in July in Fairbanks. While athletes seek gold, silver and bronze ulus, they also seek connection to the lore of their own Native cultures.
