New 2012 Inuit art calendars are out. By the way, I just saw new 2012 dog calendars out. Many are by different dog breeds so if you are into Arctic dogs (or any breeds for that matter), I'm sure that you will find something there. Worth a look.

Canadian Motivational Speaker And Native Art
Canadian motivational speaker and karate world champion Clint Cora is a huge supporter of native art as he not only collects this genre but proudly displays parts of his collection in the background of many of this Motivational WebTV video series each week. In one particular diversity and art related episode, Clint shows you many of his choice pieces of Northwest Native art as well as Inuit art from his home collection.
Being a Canadian motivational speaker, Clint collects native art primarily created by Canadian native artists. He has even written two ebooks on the subects of Canadian native art and is available through our Free Spirit Gallery website.
See his video episode with his native art collection to get an idea of what he collects. He also shows some artwork from other genres in this video as well.
Free Dog Training Video
Under the Free Spirit Gallery umbrella, we launched a new website for dog lovers and our main free attraction is a very informative and educational free dog training video by Clint Cora. It show new puppy owners as well as current dog owners what the basic minimum standards should be for obedience training. Clint demonstrates these skills with his own Lhasa Apso dogs Chester and Roxie in this video. For access, see our new dog website.

Cultural Diversity Training
In this episode of Clint Cora Motivational WebTV, yours truly as a diversity Canadian motivational speaker, talks about how one can increase exposure to cultural diversity training through art. This is one of the ways that I had originally been turned onto the world of diversity and made me want to explore other cultures around me.
I got interested in some beautiful artwork of certain cultures and in turn, became interested in the cultures behind the art. This is why art is an excellent route to explore diversity.
Becoming well versed in diversity skills which help you in becoming effective with people from all sorts of cultures and diversity groups is now considered an important component in achieving success in today's diverse environment. Art and food (as shown in a previous Motivational WebTV episode about Chinese food) are both effective and fun ways to increase diversity awareness.
Art Cultural Diversity Training On Video
In this new Motivational WebTV episode, I also take you on a tour of some of the art in my personal collection at home which includes pieces from several different cultures. Here is this unique cultural diversity training video below.
You will notice that I have quite a lot of Native Aboriginal and Inuit art in my collection. I'm a huge fan of these genres of art. If you have never seen much of these types of cultural art before but are intrigued by their styles, you can be more exposed to them by visiting either a separate Native art Facebook page I set up or a Native art blog I also run. I even offer two different ebooks on native art for free on those sites.
I hope you enjoy this episode and maybe it might spark an interest in ethnic art in you as well. Feel free to comment on this video as well as any of the artwork shown here. Just comment below or at the Motivation Facebook page where I hope you will hit the Like button.
If you like what you see and hear on this video about cultural diversity training through art, please share it with others via Facebook, Twitter or other means.

I don't usually see any native art of dogs anywhere for some reason. I wish some artists would do native art versions of my lhasa apso dogs. Wouldn't that be something?
My friend was also talking about some stray dogs up in Sioux Lookout where she has a contract. Surely they can draw them. I went there years ago when I had a pharmaceutical sales job covering the medical office up there.
Of course, I'm long retired from that field since I now work as a Canadian motivational speaker.
