Aboriginal Day in Edmonton, Alberta

We attended Aboriginal Day celebrations at the Alberta Provincial Legislature Building grounds yesterday. Although I am unsure of who was the host for the day, we had a fantastic time. There were alot of activities for children, and there were many informational booths for First Nations persons who were looking for resources for school, work, health and just about anything else you could imagine. There was entertainment, art, and things to do and learn about. I was however disappointed with the lack of authentic food or gift/craft items available for sale. Somehow I thought that in a city this size, with a large First Nations population, there would be alot of concession tables.
