Ways Of First Peoples

Continuing on, here we have more First Peoples artifacts and items, especially snowshoes.

This carving, typical of the Far North, caught my eye.


The path led into an area more concentrated on archaeology, with artifacts beneath the floor, below glass panels. The Bluefish Caves is an archaeological site in the Yukon.


Spear points and other tools are displayed from a site in Nova Scotia, along with a depiction of what the area would have looked like at the end of the last Ice Age.


This drew my attention.


A Separate Reality was painted by the First Nations artist Norval Morrisseau betwen 1979-84.
