Here are the next three video clips from the Canadian Aboriginal Festival in Toronto. The first one shows more traditional dancing by the men. The second clip shows more of the ladies who have shown to be very active in Native dance. The third one is the men again but this time, they perform a very energetic dance that involves a lot of spinning which is dizzy just to watch! See these videos at;
Free Spirit Gallery is now based in Mississauga, which is just next to Toronto. Mississauga’s city hall just happens to have a nice collection of Native art and I was able to take photos. There are a few Inuit Arctic art prints from Cape Dorset hanging on the walls and they are shown in the article below;
Last month, we shipped all of our Inuit dancing bears to overseas customers in Japan and Italy. We were able to bring two new ones in by Moe Pootoogook and Joanie Ragee, both master carvers of dancing polar bears. They can be seen among our Inuit Arctic art polar bear sculptures;
An even more unusual and fun type
of carving is a dancing walrus which is also among our new arrivals. We
also got in a new loon bird carving from Sanikiluaq island where their
Inuit carvers are known for their detailed bird carvings because of the
Arctic birds there. To round it out, we also brought in a new seal carving. All of these new arrivals can be seen at;
Until next month when more videos from the Canadian Aboriginal Festival will be up as well as more photos of Native art from the Mississauga City Hall.
