Jump into Winterlude with the Indigenous peoples of Canada.
Join us as we celebrate the first week of Winterlude with a focus on the Indigenous peoples of Canada. Go on an artifact hunt to learn about First Nations, Métis and Inuit objects and stories in the First Peoples Hall. Drop by the Canadian History Hall to explore the contributions of Indigenous peoples to the European fur trade — handle beaver pelts and hide scrapers, get hands-on with Métis beadwork and learn about the important role played by women during the fur trade. Or take a trip to the Arctic without leaving the Museum: feel the warmth and practical strength of caribou and sealskin clothing made and worn by the Inuit. Have fun with your family this Winterlude, and experience first-hand the resilience of Indigenous peoples.
