This 14-year-old kid raises and trains Arctic sled dogs
James and his dad want to keep the tradition of fishing and hunting with dogsled teams alive in Naujaat
Meet James Alaralak, a young dogsledder living in Naujaat, an Inuit community in the Arctic, once known as Repulse Bay.
James says that he and his father are some of the few community members who still hunt and fish with the use of dog teams. "Keeping the culture alive is important to me and my dad, because when I have kids I want to teach them how to dogsled."
Not only does James build his own sleds, he also raises the pups and trains them to be proper sled dogs. Even when he gets thrown from the sled (and the dogs speed on, unaware), he can't get upset. "I love them too much."
