This will be the final post here at the Inuit & Native Art Bulletin blog. But don't worry, we are not going away. We are just continuing our blog presence at our new Free Spirit Gallery Blog which will use the WordPress platform.
All of our blog posts from now on will be over there. Not only that, we will be sharing wonderful images of both Inuit and Northwest Native artwork over there on a regular basis to help build a community of art lovers. So please give our new blog home a visit. All of our associated blogs will be moving to WordPress including our Canadian motivational speaker, Pharmaceutical Sales Jobs and Potty Training Dogs websites and blogs. See you there!

Here is a wonderful piece that we commissioned Northwest Native Indian art master carver Cody Mathias to produce for a client. It is an eagle with a salmon and measures 26 by 16 inches. Such custom pieces are indeed available through Free Spirit Gallery as special projects. Just contact us if interested in one.

I went to the big cultural festival Carassauga back in May which is put on each year in my hometown of Mississauga, Ontario. It is a huge three day event with pavilions showcasing cultures from over 60 different countries. This is representative of just how diverse Mississauga has become over the years.
There was even a pavilion for Canada which included some content featuring Native Canadian culture. Pavilions offered entertaining shows with music and dance. There was also lots of ethnic food to sample. This is a great event to learn about the many different cultures that live right here in our own city.
If you have any chance to attend a cultural festival much like Carassauga, I would highly recommend it as such events are great ways to learn about different cultures in an entertaining and enjoyable setting.
To show you just how diverse and big the Carassauga festival is, I brought along my camcorder this year and captured bits from lots of the shows put on by the pavilions. As a Canadian motivational speaker, I decided to use this video footage as part of an episode of my Clint Cora Motivational WebTV show that is online. I reproduced the show below for your viewing pleasure. Past episodes are at Motivational WebTV archive in case you are interested.

Since Free Spirit Gallery has created a new Native Art and Inuit Art page on Facebook, there have been new photos of beautiful Native American Indian art as well as Inuit art shared pretty well daily.
It was Free Spirit Gallery's intention to expose more people to these wonderful artforms of the Native people. So far, the growth of Facebook fans hitting the 'like' button has been great. The comments about each photo added each day have been encouraging as well.
You can see what other fans of Native art are saying about each piece that is shared on the new Facebook page. Join the community by visiting the Native Inuit Art Facebook Page.
