A dog from Old Crow chases the Ski Doo, he’s almost as fast!
This Skidoo cover or Ski-Dog blanket was made by people in the community of Old Crow, a Gwitchin community in the Yukon. Echoing the movement of pom poms on adorned traditional dog blankets, the engine idle brings the Ski-Dog blanket to life as it quivers with the engine.
Video on King Edward Mountain of the first ski-dog blanket I made with the beadwork of Daytona Kunnizzi Njootli for my dad Elan skidoo. Please play it on repeat.
