A local artist and past chief gave visitors to Vancouver a unique perspective on Northeastern B.C. on Sunday as part of the Olympic cultural celebrations.

Garry Oker, of the Doig River First Nation, showcased a multimedia presentation at the Four Host Nations’ Aboriginal Pavilion in Vancouver on Sunday evening.

The show included a video presentation of Oker’s artwork, along with video footage of the Northeast.
