Mi'Kmaq and Maliseet - Cultural and Ancestral Material by Stephen J. Augustine
Publication Date: 2005-01-01
Mi'kmaq and Maliseet Cultural Ancestral Material has been designed to provide images and basic information on Mi'kmaq and Maliseet artifacts held in the collections of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Drawing on objects collected, sold, or donated between 1841 and the present day, this publication provides a fascinating look at the richness of Mi'kmaq and Maliseet cultural practice, technological ingenuity, and artistic expression. Objects such as baskets, canoes, clothing, moccasins, and tools are illustrated with a color photograph and accompanied by a brief text describing the object and its provenance. The result is a comprehensive reference tool for Native peoples, researchers, and educators.
