Native Aboriginal Students In Northern Ontario

I met some college students from northern Ontario campuses this week and they told me that there is an increase of native aboriginal students.  This is good news since more of the native community is starting to move into higher education.  Of course, this also poses potential diversity issues which can be addressed by good diversity training at colleges.

Totem Pole Making On TV

Bravo TV has a show tonight at 8 pm EST called Making of a Haida Totem Pole which should be quite interesting as it shows native art carvers creating a totem pole for the Vancouver airport.  For more information on this type of native art, see totem poles.

Diversity Message On Stickers

I created a sticker that features a very important diversity message and this new sticker will be handed out to students at the upcoming COCA conference next week in St. John's.  It's part of a diversity campaign that is connected with my presentation on the topic of diversity.  This will fit in well as it's another tool I can use to spread the message as a diversity speaker.

Is Interest In Art Lower During Recession?

I've noticed that the number of visitors to our Native American art website has dropped over the last several weeks.  Has the recession lowered the interest in art?  Probably yes.  Native American art, like other forms of art, is considered a luxury item.  Certainly not in many people's minds these days due to the tough economic times.  But Free Spirit Gallery will still be running as usual with lots of articles and videos on Native American art.

Native Art Gallery Self Help Book

Here's what Shouvik Chowdhury of Rogers Communications wrote about Native art gallery owner and karate world champion Clint Cora's self help book, The Life Champion In You.

"The Life Champion in You is not just another motivational book, it has a lot more to offer. Clint Cora shares his personal experiences on how someone can get over personal tragedies and be successful. He offers simple tools one can use to track and eventually achieve success. The best feature of this book is that it communicates many powerful messages and proven techniques in few pages."


"There are many motivational books in the market. However most are hundreds of pages long which require a few weeks of reading. By thetime we are in the second half of the book, most of us have already forgotten the first half. Clint Cora avoids this by sticking to the point for each concept he introduces in his book. One can finish reading this book in a few hours and put the techniques into action the next day."


"The Life Champion in You teaches us to compete with ourselves than with others. Its techniques can be used in any area of life as the book says that 'success is measured by the individual'. The tools taught in this book can help anyone coast through the most difficult situations in life. I would highly recommend everyone to have one copy and read it at least once a month."
