Description

Drawing on artifacts held in the collections of the Canadian Museum of History, this book provides a fascinating look at the richness of Mi’kmaq and Maliseet cultural practice, technological ingenuity and artistic expression. Designed as a finding aid, this book will undoubtedly become a helpful resource for Aboriginal Peoples, scholars, teachers and the general public. Objects such as baskets, canoes, clothing, moccasins and tools are illustrated with full-colour photographs, and are accompanied by a brief text describing the object and its provenance. The result is a comprehensive reference tool for researchers and educators alike.
