Hay River, Fort Smith prepare to welcome Arctic competitors

A great interview with President of the Host Society Greg Rowe in the Windspeaker, widely circulated Indigenous news publication.

"The 2018 Arctic Winter Games are still almost five months away, but organizers are keeping busy with pre-competition details that need to be addressed.

The Games, held every two years, are scheduled for March 18 to March 24 in the South Slave Region of the Northwest Territories. The South Slave Region consists of seven communities. The two largest of these communities—Hay River and Fort Smith—will be the host locations for the sports that will be contested.
