My name is Jamie Takkiruq, I am from Gjoa Haven, Nunavut. My favourite after school activity is ping pong. My most favourite thing to do is to go to traditional drum dances, I like it because I get to learn things about the past from the elders like what games they used to play and most importantly how to drum dance. I would like to be an Inuit games teacher so I can teach the games I have played so I can carry on traditions I have been taught to keep the Inuit tradition.

Sled runners - Which Goes Faster?
City:Gjoa Haven, NU
School:Qiqirtaq Ilihakvik
Abstract:I compared the different types of sled runners that are used on Kamotiks (sleds) to test which type travels the fastest on soft and hard snow. The Inuit use the sleds to carry heavy loads of hunting supplies and also their families. Traveling quickly is important as the temperatures can drop very low and weather conditions can change rapidly.
