In the Yukon's far north, 280 Aboriginals live in the village of Old Crow . Deep in this wilderness, the health of the children is a source of concern for Glenna Tetlichi, a Vuntut Gwitchin Nation leader. The rise of obesity, diabetes and delinquency underscores to what extent health and social problems are linked. In the 1950s, Father Jean-Marie Mouchet set up a cross-country ski program whose purpose was to restore the young people's self-esteem. The program produced several champions, including Glenna, who is now a mother. In 2002, Glenna and Father Moucher devised a new program, the Old Crow Health and Fitness Project, and overcame numerous obstacles to make it a reality.
