A finely webbed pair of Gwich'in snowshoes. The wood frames and crosspieces are stained a reddish colour, probably with ochre. A line of sinew with red and blue glass beads is strung down the centre of the webbing.
A pair of ankle-wrap moccasins made of moose hide and caribou hide. They were worn by the Tsiigehtchic participant in the last leg of the Western Arctic Centennial Dogsled Mail Run, 1970. As part of the Northwest Territories centennial celebrations, the mail run was made in relays from Fort Smith to Inuvik between March 15 and April 12, 1970.
The Department of Education, Culture and Employment is happy to note that Phase 1 of the Emerging Wisely plan includes being able to open museums and galleries. The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre is currently developing a plan for reopening that will ensure the health and safety of staff and patrons, and will not be opening until this plan is in place and approved by the Office of the Chief Health Officer. We will provide updates as more information becomes available.
