Ambrotype Project Name Change? "KANATA"?
I have been thinking of changing the name of "Oh! Canada!!" (seems too corny). One possible new name would be KANATA, Kanata is the plains Cree word for CANADA. In the projects name I wanted to pay tribute to my subject/themes "Canada" but I also need to show respect to ancient first nations cultures that were here much earlier than the 1867 birth of my country. The Cree Nation is located in the areas around my city of Edmonton and has been in existence for centuries. It seems to fit to use their language (in a respectful way). I will think on it some more, also asking the advice of friends.
