Do something different

Aboriginal Cultural

Aboriginal culture has been at the confluence of the rivers for many thousands of years. While Calgary 2012 seems to be about celebrating Western European culture. Aboriginal culture must be a consistent theme applied to all activities throughout the year in order for this celebration to be legitimate. And, while a specific First Nations Festival is a great annual event, it will considered tokenism or marginalization of aboriginal cultural heritage if the broader amtter of aboriginal culture is not a core element of all activities.
