Aboriginal Company

Painted Warriors is 100% Aboriginally owned and we understand the challenges that our students may have experienced in a classroom setting. We also understand some of the barriers faced by aboriginal entrepreneurs. Together, we have put together a hands on traditionally based learning program.

One of our main focus areas is in the tourism industry. There is a growing need for authentic aboriginal tour guides and operators, so we work with our partner companies to provide training programs that will bring more qualified aboriginal guides forward.
