Day 2: Native Youth Olympics Features Stick Pull

The second day of the Senior Native Youth Olympics in Anchorage featured the Eskimo stick pull in the morning.

There’s also a version called the Indian stick pull and Elia Tulik from the Nelson Island community of Nightmute has competed in both.

He’s a junior this year and says he’s tried all the events but he qualified for the Indian stick pull which in a way he’s been practicing for a long time.
