Four Host First Nations Pavilion
ENDED FEB 28, 2010: Located on the plaza of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at Georgia and Hamilton in downtown Vancouver, within easy walking distance of BC Place (venue for opening ceremonies) and Canada Hockey Place (venue for ice hockey), the 8,000 square-foot 2010 Aboriginal Pavilion will be right in the heart of Olympic activity, with Vancouver’s Celebration Site located immediately across Cambie Street. The pavilion features a high-tech 3,000 square-foot sphere, surrounded by a Coast Salish Longhouse. The Longhouse, which features a 1,500 square-foot Trading Post, will be relocated after the Games as a permanent legacy. As well, the adjacent 2,000 square-foot QE restaurant will be converted into a reception hall, featuring an Aboriginal showcase and cuisine. Special “theme” days will showcase Aboriginal groups from all regions of Canada. Live events will include Inuit throat singing, Métis jigging, hoop dancing, as well as spotlighting contemporary Aboriginal performances and other fields of achievement. We're advised the Yukon First Nations 2010 will be presenting their 45 minute show ‘What the Land Remembers – Tales of Raven and Wolf’ on Sunday, February 21, 2010 beginning at 11 am, ending at 3pm. GlobalTV did a great profile of the pavilion you can view here. Hours of operation vary by day. Click here for a detailed schedule of events.
