Meet Nitotem the Lynx, the official mascot for the Wood Buffalo 2023 Arctic Winter Games. Niotem was born just north of Fort Chipewyan in the Wood Buffalo National Park. The other animals in the boreal forest gave him his name, which means “my friend” in the Cree language.
Nitotem was brought to life and illustrated by Sadie Antoine of Fort McMurray. Her design was the winning submission chosen in the mascot design contest. As an ambassador, Nitotem can now be found going across the region sharing his excitement for the Games.
If you want Nitotem to appear at your event, please fill out the mascot request form.
