CURRENT EXHIBIT (December 14th 2017 to April 29th 2018)

Guardians of traditional know-how

The wide variety of decorative techniques developed and practiced by Huron-Wendat women go back centuries. Today, the guardians of traditional know-how contribute to the preservation and practice of these techniques, in particular beading, porcupine quill work and moosehair embroidery. This exhibit presents ancient and modern pieces, made and decorated with these three techniques.
