Calendar 2018 Wearing our Identity - The First Peoples Collection

Regular price $28.00

Among First Peoples, the relationship between clothing and identity is extremely significant.  Aside from the primary function of protection, clothing can disclose the age and status of the wearer, reveal the nation to which he or she belongs, pay tribute to an individual’s particular achievements, or evoke the close connection between human beings and nature.

Whether building on the rich textures of the past or fearlessly transforming contemporary fashion, First Nations, Inuits and Métis use clothing to communicate the strength and meaning of their lives.

Drawing upon the McCord Museum’s collection, this calendar features twelve elements of dress originally presented in the exhibition Wearing our Identity- The First Peoples Collection.
