Virtual Circle – The Aboriginal Community

While in the process of researching for my study, I stumbled across a website (www.vcircle.com) which acts as a portal for Aboriginal cultural information. The site includes access to important cultural and historical information, Aboriginal beliefs, Native clothing and food and other areas of pertinent information. What I believe is exciting about this site is it allows for Aboriginal youth to connect and learn about their heritage and cultural background. As an example, using the site as a portal I was able to come across another site which catalogued the use of Native imagery for sports teams and sports team mascots. In addition, the site featured film footage of how Hollywood depicted Native Americans and comic book covers. This site can be found here: www.aistm.org/1indexpage.htm
