New Blog For Lovers Of Dogs

Dogs of course are probably the most popular animals on the planet worldwide. This includes the Arctic north as well since the Inuit have relied on husky dogs for ages. I saw many husky dogs when I was in Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut territory in Canada. There's a photo of some of them at my Iqaluit article.

Speaking of dogs, if you are a lover of dogs, I just started a new blog called Life With Dogs Blog. Hope you will check it out. And yes, those are my lhasa apso dogs at the top.

Australian Blog Picks Up Workplace Diversity Training Article

Diversity speaker Clint Cora got one of his articles picked up in an Australian blog called School Friends. It's an article he wrote about Workplace Diversity Training. The fact that a blog geared towards students have picked it up means that they are already thinking about the importance of embracing diversity as well as developing the associated skills for their future careers. Perhaps with the immigration of Asians as well as the native Australian aboriginal people mixing in with others there, the Australians have been keen on diversity. Good for them!

Native Canadian Protest Against Winter Olympics

The Olympic torch relay touched down in Toronto, Ontario this week and it was a great event for all, except for a few people. Looks like there was a Native Canadian protest that disrupted the Olympic torch relay a bit in downtown Toronto. Organizers had to change the route a bit. This is a real shame as such protests should have no place in the world of peaceful international sports. Protesters should take their voice to some other venue. If they were hoping to gain some sympathy, they certain had that backfired on them since their actions were definitely not appreciated by the crowds of others who came to see the Olympic torch.

Although these are replicas, they are of very high quality. To see what they have, click on the graphic below to their website and then click on the Weapons tab. Then click on Native American which will then bring up the right page.

Canadian Aboriginal Festival Moved To Different City

Looks like the Canadian Aboriginal Festival was no longer in Toronto this year. The new location was in Hamilton. This is the largest native aboriginal festival in Canada and was at the Skydome in Toronto for many years. When I went about two years ago, I already noticed that the attendance was good but not great. The Skydome seats certainly looked rather empty as it was a much larger venue than what the festival probably required.

Now that the festival was relocated to Hamilton, it probably would look busier. Also the sign of the economic times also likely had an influence why a relocation was necessary.

Native American Indian Art Posters

Art prints and quality posters represent an affordable alternative to high end art and the genre with Native American culture and Native Indian art is no different.

Native Art Inuit Art Calendars From Different Company

We got a call from a lady yesterday asking why there are shipping charges for the Native art calendars and Inuit art calendars when our website says free shipping within North America. This is because the free shipping applies to the items that our Free Spirit Gallery sells, not for the products from our partners. The Native art calendars and Inuit art calendars go through Calendars.com which is a totally separate company from us although we do highly recommend them.
