Jamboree celebrates spring with outdoor games


The 63rd Annual Inuvik Muskrat Jamboree took place April 9‐12, 2021 with a modified but successful format. 

Many of the signature indoor and large gathering events were absent such as the Opening Ceremonies, Drumming and Dancing, Community Feast, Old Time Dances, etc. but Jamboree participants could still take part in traditional games on the ice such as harpoon throw, tea boiling, log sawing, muskrat skinning, and skidoo, snowshoe, and dog sled races. 

Outdoor events had limited capacities to adhere to health protocols. 

The Inuvik Muskrat Jamboree is a true celebration of spring, cultural pride, and traditional and contemporary life in the Mackenzie Delta in the Northwest Territories.
