BC gets real

For some, finding a good knockoff is oh so satisfying; we aren’t those kind of people, especially when it comes to aboriginal art. That’s why we’re happy about an initiative (12 years in the making) by the Aboriginal Tourism Association of BC called Authentic Aboriginal.

Its logo _ an eye in the middle of two eagle feathers representing the bond between people and nature - certifies that an article or business is genuine - that is, the product of a First Nations person. Industry partners include cultural centres, galleries and wineries. Among the first to pass the screening: Whistler’s Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre (slcc.ca) and Haida Gwaii (haidagwaiitourism.ca), formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands.
