Dog Sledding

In this novel there is a dog sledding race between two of the eksimo's at a charity event. I believe that his was very important in real life as well in the novel because if promotes the knowledge of the Eskimo people. Many people just think they are natives that live in igloos. But, in fact there is much more to them. Such as the ancient traditions of whale hunts. They used to ride dog sleds as there main form of transportation as it was fast and if you knew what you were doing safe. Now, they are more modernized and ride snowmobiles to and from their houses, not igloos. This is why I thought that the dog sledding event was important because it promoted the Eskimo people as a whole.
