With the larger photos of Eskimo art pieces, these enhancements made sense as they displayed nicely in the 600 screens but can now take advantage of the wider 1024 screens as well.

The next project will be to modify the German and Japanese webpages of the site starting with the German probably this weekend.
Meanwhile, feel free to give the Native American Indian art eCards page a try.

Users with 800 x 600 resolution screens who previously viewed some of the webpages with images not aligned will now see all pages aligned for drastically improved viewing. Users with wider 1024 x 768 resolution screens will now see the Free Spirit Gallery website expanded to fill out most of their monitors for better balance.
Item pages for each of our Inuit art and Native American art pieces will look more uniform as they now take on a similar format with the gray boxes containing the prices and Buy It links underneath the main image of each item.
These changes may seem minor but they all add up to increased viewing pleasure for our website visitors. We hope that you will all enjoy the site even more now.

Hyacinthe Andre, a respected northern Canadian aboriginal Gwich'in elder in the Mackenzie Delta region of the Northwest Territories, died Tuesday morning at the Inuvik Regional Hospital. He was 96. Andre led the Gwichya Gwich'in of Tsiigehtchic, a hamlet of about 200 people located on the Mackenzie River 1,061 kilometres north of Yellowknife, from 1942 to 1980.
Hyacinthe Andre received a lifetime achievement award last week from the Gwich'in Tribal Council. The longest-serving Gwich'in chief, Andre was described by Gwich'in Tribal Council president Fred Carmichael as one of the last remaining northern Canadian aboriginal traditional leaders.
"The youth wanted a youth centre," Carmichael recalled, "and he said, 'Okay you want a hall? Okay, you come with me,' and he got them to cut some logs."
He added that Andre was full of traditional knowledge and used it to help his people.
"Today, too many people want everything on a silver platter," Carmichael said, "but that wasn't his way."
Andre held many different jobs, including working as a cook on a mission boat along the Mackenzie River in the 1920s, and running a coffee shop and a store in the early 1970s. Andre was married to Eliza Sam and had 12 children.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada - September 5, 2006 -- Free Spirit Gallery, a Montreal based online art gallery specializing in Inuit and Northwest Native American Indian art, has made enhancements to its website by adding welcome messages by its founder as audio and video clips. Web surfers and potential customers can now see a real human face and voice behind this particular internet business.
Clint Leung, who created Free Spirit Gallery in 2004 says, “Many people are skeptical about websites in general and therefore hesitant to shop online since it’s difficult to tell which sites are legitimate and which ones are crooked. I decided to put a video clip of me online so potential customers can see who is responsible for the gallery. They can see that I am accountable for any business with us.”
Leung also added an audio only version of his welcome message as well as a photo of himself at Free Spirit Gallery’s ‘About Us’ webpage for visitors who do not have high speed internet access. He adds, “Too often, many internet businesses come across as faceless entities out there. By personalizing our website, we can help build people’s trust and comfort levels with us so that they will eventually become our customers. We can also be contacted anytime to help service them.”
So now at least Free Spirit Gallery can be among the current minority of internet businesses who have taken the brave steps to put real human faces out there in connection with their websites.
