3.3. First Nations Design and Craft

Diverse Origins and Development of Canadian Design and Craft

The artefacts of First Nations, and earliest explorers, migrants and settlers reflect diverse origins of many Canadian design traditions.

Lectures may include references to geography, anthropology, ethnography along with social, cultural and economic perspectives. This Kwakwala-speaking woman from the coast of British Columbia is shown here wearing large abalone earrings and a shredded cedar bark cape. The abalone is larger that local kind, and may have been imported from California through the extensive trading networks that linked the Northwest Coast in the pre-contact era".
