Aurora Warrior

I don't think I'll ever meet someone with as striking a name as Aurora Warrior, and this 15-year-old from Sitka Alaska is in Yellowknife to compete in Dene Games. Check it out, she already has an ulu.

More on ulu's later. They are the traditional Inuit women's tool and the design for medals at Arctic Winter Games. From personal experience, I can tell you that once you get an ulu in your kitchen, you will throw away your other knives. It slices, it dices, and cuts a mean pizza too.

Aurora has an ulu already, and above she is demonstrating her form in the snowsnake. She can speak for herself, just click the video below to listen.
