A race like no other

To connect with their traditions, Inuit of eastern Nunavut challenge each other each spring in the marathon Nunavut Quest dog sledding race. For six days, the Piksuk Media crew travel with the 17 teams and their 118 helpers along the spectacular east coast of Baffin Island, braving blizzards, high winds and cracking sea ice as the changing climate puts everyone on edge.
