A carved stone pipe bowl with a cross hatched design. This style of pipe came from the eastern part of Canada and moved westwards with the fur trade. Pipes like these were often carried by voyageurs. Dene and Métis who frequented southern posts would have traded for these pipes. This pipe bowl was found at one of John Franklin’s campsites from the 1819-1822 expedition.
A jacket made with Russian squirrel fur. The fur was reworked from the lining of a velvet coat. The jacket is made in a traditional style for a 2-3 year old child and has been worn by several generations of children.
