Culture Secrets - North - Canada - News - CBC Player

Culture Secrets - North - Canada - News - CBC Player

from Player

I loved these videos when I came across them. There are 14 of them in total.  Some are presented in English and some are presented in other indigenous languages with subtitles in English. Click on the title link to access all 14 and then click on the video you want to watch. 

They describe the aspects of culture that are important to each of the 14 northern people featured.  I haven't watched them all yet but am sure to do so. They are fascinating!

From Laakuluk Williamson Bathory's  raven mask dancing showing her connect, collaborate and share her culture through dance; to Romeo Saganash (Cree Politician) guiding and sharing his home away from home in Quebec City; and Kiera-Dawn Kolson of Yellowknife, a Tso'Tine-Gwich'in artist and motivational speaker.  

They are truly inspiring and illustrate perfectly how to value cultural diversity in society allowing people to present their own stories.
