As part of the Ancient Traditions, Modern Comfort prize package, the lucky winner will be treated to a one night stay in  Canada's first indigenous arts hotel, a place Time Magazine included in its list of 100  world destinations not to be missed. 

Each of the  one-of-a-kind guest suites are a collaboration between  a  local indigenous artist and an Interior Designer which  immerses guests in luxurious contemporary comfort and stunning visual stories of First Nations culture.
