The videocassette (VHS) is 45 minutes and length and includes archival photographs and film footage of traditional Dene life, as well as detailed footage of the five traditional games played at the Arctic Winter Games.

The fonds also contains six scrapbooks of newspaper clippings about sports dated from 1977 to 1979, as well as Sport North Federation and Arctic Winter Games posters.
