They use two, three, four, or five dogs to race one mile. One person goes around the course on the river at a time. The person with the fastest time wins. The young children also race. They go across the river with one dog.
The community has a cover dish. First, people go around the community and pick up food. Then, everyone goes to the hall. Setsoo Madeline says grace in Denaakk’e. Then we eat in this order: Visitors, Elders, grown ups, and finally kids. After the meal the dog racers draw numbers to see what order they will race the following day.
