Vancouver Olympics - First Nations Dance of Canada

Look carefully at the video of the Opening Ceremonies at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Do you see any incidences of stereotyping or misrepresentation of the Aboriginal culture? Can you identify any cultural symbols that we have studied being highlighted in this presentation? In your opinion, do presentations of this type help or hinder the understanding of the Aboriginal people in Canada?
