Dog Mushing

A part of NWT history, ASCNWT works with local dog mushers to deliver a community workshop. School students will have the opportunity to learn a number of valuable dog mushing techniques from; how to care and handle for the dogs, food, equipment necessary and how to run a team on the trails.

  • Fort McPherson
  • Dettah/N’dilo

    ABOUT THE ABORIGINAL SPORT CIRCLE WORKING IN YOUR COMMUNITY

    Established in 1999, ASCWA was created through a national consensus-building process in response to the need for more accessible and equitable sport and recreation opportunities for Aboriginal peoples across the Northwest Territories.

    We believe that all Aboriginal people in the NWT should have the opportunity to participate in sport and recreational activities at a level of involvement they find meaningful and valuable.
