GoPro in Mentasta: From a Musher's Perspective

On March 30, Mentasta hosted students from Dot Lake, Tok, Tetlin, and Northway for a day of team challenges in which they worked together to demonstrate their knowledge of mushing and local culture.

Time trials were a highlight of the day. Student teams selected a musher and their four dog team. Students and teachers were joined by community members, Elders, and local cultural experts.  Teams ran on a trail put in by the Mentasta community. 

Thanks to Snow Monkey Kennel for providing the dogs.
