The workshops are another way for the Festival to expand its ongoing efforts to share the rich and diverse Aboriginal culture with others.
The interest in everything "Aboriginal" has increased over the years in keeping with the desire of many people to learn more about traditions and alternate lifestyles.
The Canadian Aboriginal Festival, the largest Aboriginal multi-disciplined Arts event in North America, brings together many of the "best" in the various performing arts during the festival.
With thousands of participants representing more than 100 Nations it is an opportunity for everyone to not only see the "best" but to also learn from them.
