Published by Mercury Series Ethnology Paper 143. Canadian Museum of Civilization, 2005, 61 pp
A three-year collaboration between the Gwich’in, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre results in a revival of skills and knowledge employed in making traditional clothing of caribou skin. Over 40 seamstresses create five reproductions of an elegant nineteenth-century summer outfit from the collection of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. This richly illustrated book is an indispensable resource on Gwich’in culture and heritage, and on modern partnerships between museums and First Nations.
