Clip: Season 21 Episode 5 | 2m 54s Video has closed captioning.

In a scene from ATTLA, the grand-nephew of legendary Alaska Native dogsled racer George Attla reflects on growing up not fully appreciating how much of a champion his great uncle was, in a culture where you don't brag about your accomplishments. Together they watch an old TV interview in which Attla predicts dogsled racing is destined to become a less accessible "rich man's sport."
