2023 Traditional Games
April 1 - 2, 2023
Day 1 Stream:
Day 2 Stream:
Juneau’s annual Traditional Games event includes 10 different games that test skills of strength, agility, balance, endurance and focus. These games are based on hunting and survival skills of the Indigenous people of Alaska and across the Arctic going back hundreds of years. Athletes strive to perform at their personal best while helping and supporting their fellow competitors, no matter what team. This is the spirit of the games, to work together toward common goals and learn from the skills and values that allowed Alaska Native people to survive and thrive in some of the harshest conditions.
Juneau’s Traditional Games program is led by coach Kyle Kaayák’w Worl. firstname.lastname@example.org
