Aboriginal art and crafts at City Hall



I went downtown today to see my friend Ramona's sister at the arts and crafts show at City Hall. Sharon makes the most delicious Native jewelry, and I joined a draw for a fabulous small original painting of the sacred white buffalo.


Saturday, June 21 is National Aboriginal Day (Summer Solstice) and World Peace & Prayer Day. the Buffalo Jump Festival goes on all day at Trinity-Bellwoods Park (Queen St. West), and I hope to get there at noon for the sharing circles and -- food!! Not to mention a look at the First Nations' artists and artisans exhibits and sales.
