SEE Change’s video series profiling social entrepreneurs effecting change continues with a visit to Skwachàys Lodge in Vancouver, British Columbia. Billed as the first Aboriginal arts hotel in Canada, the boutique hotel was designed by Aboriginal artists and local designers. Aside from 18 uniquely designed rooms that help support Aboriginal artists in residence, the hotel houses an Aboriginal fair trade art gallery, a sweat lodge and smudge room.
In this video interview, we speak with the CEO of Vancouver Native Housing, Dave Eddy, the hotel General Manager, Maggie Edwards and Clifton Fred, one of the artists who took part in the hotel’s design.
