The Dogrib Caribou Skin Lodge

This is the accompanying booklet for the 1998 caribou skin lodge exhibit.

This caribou skin lodge was purchased from Bear Lake Chief in 1893 by Frank Russell, for the University of Iowa. In 1997, the Natural History Museum of the University of Iowa made a gift of the lodge to the Dogrib Nation, the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre, and the people of the Northwest Territories.
