Polar Bear TV Special

There's a special TV program called Polar Bear Fever on tonight at 8 pm est on CBC.  Should be interesting.  Heck, any show on polar bears would be interesting.  I'm definitely going to watch.

Native Art Museum Between Toronto and Montreal

As I was driving between Toronto and Montreal yesterday, I noticed a sign on the highway mentioning a native art museum.  I haven't been to this one before and I'm pretty sure that sign wasn't there before.  I might stop by on my way back. I do have a camera but didn't bring my camcorder.  This may be good content for future native art articles at Free Spirit Gallery.

Inuit Inukshuk a Popular Gift

The Inuit inukshuk is still a popular business gift.  We just sold another inukshuk carving to a company who is giving it to a retiring president.  We have only two Inuit inukshuk sculptures left in our gallery.

The Office Diversity Day Hopefully Not Real Life

Saw the rerun of the TV show 'The Office' and it's episode 'Diversity Day'.  It was a spoof on diversity training in the workplace.  I just hope that companies out there do not run their workplace diversity training like that in real life.  A good workplace diversity speaker program will help people see the true benefits of having a diverse environment.

Inuit Art Video Added Each Day

We are slowly adding a series of re-edited Inuit art videos each morning until mid week.  These videos are now being hosted on YouTube rather than Google Video since Google has stopped taking new videos.  All future Inuit art videos will be hosted primarily on the YouTube site with our gallery site using embeds so you can view these videos directly from our website.

Should We Embrace Diversity Video Comment

Since if we are interested in Inuit art or Native American art, it's assumed that we are advocates of diversity.  Here's my short video comment on whether we should embrace diversity.  Although most people will say that we should, we wonder if we really are.  Is diversity a positive or just a negative to be tolerated?

Native Americans In Major League Baseball

Kyle Lohse, a major league baseball pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals and a Nomlaki Native American, singed a 4-yeaer, $41 million contract.  Other Native Americans in the major leagues are Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox and Joba Chamberlain of the New York Yankees.  Again, this is great for the Native American community to see a few of their own making it big.  These are very inspirational examples especially for the youth.   See more motivational quotes to get you inspired for your own goals.
