Video B-Roll Available Via CNW - Aboriginal Tourism to get boost from 2010 Winter Games



    TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - The following B-Roll is available by Broadcast
On-Demand web download:

    In the stunning setting of the Bill Reid Gallery in Vancouver, the
Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) and the Four Host First Nations (FHFN) held
a ceremonial signing of an agreement to promote Aboriginal tourism. With up to
three billion viewers expected to tune in, Canada's tourism marketers at the
CTC see the 2010 Winter Games as a prime-time opportunity to promote
Aboriginal tourism. The FHFN -- comprised of the four Nations who will welcome
the world to their shared ancestral territories in 2010 -- also see Aboriginal
tourism as a key 2010 focus and legacy. "The Olympics are going to be the
world's biggest potlatch," says Tewanee Joseph, the Executive Director of
FHFN.
    Video package includes footage of signing ceremony, interviews and b-roll
of aboriginal tourism experiences across Canada including wildlife, grizzly
bear tour, festivals and ceremonial dancing and drumming.
