The Inuit Sled Dog International
The Inuit Sled Dog International (ISDI) is a consortium of enthusiasts whose goal is the preservation of this ancient arctic breed in its purest form as a working dog.

The Nunavut Quest game is now available online for both Windows and Macintosh platforms. There is no charge to download from the nunavutquest.com website. However only those with fast and reliable internet connections should attempt the download which is estimated to take about two hours. Dial up users can expect a download to take over 40 hours! Piksuk Media is in the process of creating a DVD of the game which will be offered for sale in the near future.
The mini games can now be downloaded to an iPad. This is an “app” available through iTunes by searching for "Nunavut Quest".
The DVD (for home viewing) of the six-episode Nunavut Quest documentary has been created. Piksuk Media is waiting to hear from the Aboriginal Peoples’ Television Network as to whether they will allow the DVD’s sale before the Fall airing of series broadcast in Inuktitut.
Nunavutquest.com is in the process of posting images, results and stories about both the 2012 Nunavut Quest dog team race as well as the new race from Clyde River to Qikiqtarjuaq. These can be currently found under the "News" heading.
