February 23 to March 10, 2021 ribbon Canada Winter Games 2007
Mascot - Northwest Territories

Hi there, I’m the Northwest Territories mascot for the 2007 Canada Winter Games and my name is Taiga.  Tiaga means Boreal Forest and is pronounced Tag – ah.  My parka is a traditional style worn by the Inuvialuit and Gwitch’in people who live in the Mackenzie Delta Region.  It is decorated with a distinctive white, red and blue braid called the Delta braid.  Traditional braids like mine where decorated with porcupine quills but are more recently made of cotton biased tape.  My boots are tanned hide mukluks.
