Alaska Native Baby Contest

I love these pictures. They are from the Native Baby Contest held at the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics. It's a popular event, and parents can enter their babies to compete in a fashion show of sorts. The winner is the baby whose regalia is deemed best by judges, but I have no idea how they pick winners, they all look so adorable.
