In this "White Boy" cartoon by Garrett Price, Whiteboy (who was adopted by an Indian tribe) participates in a dog sled race. His native friends Woodchuck and Starlight help create the rigging and harness up Whiteboy’s team of wolf dogs. He races against Louis the French Trapper who has a team of huskies. Woodchuck makes a cross-country course by dragging a leg of venison through the woods. Both teams follow the scent but Whiteboy’s wolf-dogs are distracted by a snow shoe rabbit. The sled goes out of control and tumbles into the Totem Queen who was watching the race. Whiteboy falls off the sled asks Starlight if he was the winner of the race.
