Mi'kmaw Community Gatherings

Material Culture

The Mi'kmaq are noted for their beautiful crafts; many in Nova Scotia Archives 's holdings are illustrated in this section. Nova Scotia's contribution to the Great Exhibition in London in 1851 included numerous items of native manufacture – baskets, mats, a canoe, paddles, a cradle, chairs, hoods, moccasins, a dress, fans, purses and cigar cases. Works of art and photographs frequently show Native peoples with examples of their artistic handcrafts – in traditional dress with quill boxes, baskets and other birchbark items. See examples in Family and Friends, Portraits and Portrayals and Regalia and Remembrance. On rarer occasions, photographers actually show craft persons engaged in creating a traditional product – Trades and Livelihoods.
