New Portal: Native Canada

This portal brings together a number of digital collections with strong emphasis on the aboriginal people of Canada. View clips from four films from the ANCS (Alberta Native Communication Society) film collection, find out which traditional medicinal plant may be used for headaches, read about the Blackfoot Ghost dance under folklore or even learn how to write in Dene Suline (Chipewyan) using the Dr. Eung-do Cook fonds. The possibilities are educational and entertaining.

Links within the university to appropriate departments, faculties and centres are also noted.
