Contemporary And Traditional Items

These are clubs, used in fishing.


Other tools of the trade.


This blanket caught my eye in particular. It's contemporary, woven by Debra and Robin Sparrow in 1989. Other items in the display case include a loom, spindle whorls, and a wool beater.


Items here are contemporary, including a table, plate, cookbook, and drum.

These are items for chieftains of the historical period.


More of the traditional items. The richness of the carvings works well with those reds.

A video display looks at a voyage by canoe, done in the contemporary era.

We'll leave off with this display case for today.

  3. Great display of these items, William. There is much to learn about First Nations people and with knowledge comes understanding and respect.

  8. No estoy muy familiarizada, con los artículos de pesca, soy de una provincia interior, aunque siempre que puedo, me gusta viajar a un lugar en donde haya mar.
