    Birch Bark Biting Art
      Canada - Western
    The late Angelique Merasty, of Amisk Lake, Saskatchewan, had been interested in the art of birch bark biting ever since she was six years old. She learned the traditional art form through her mother and the older women in her community. By the time she was 20, Angelique was making her own designs with great success. Since then, her work has been shown in various museums all over Canada and various parts of the world such as the United States, Germany, and Great Britain. This is an example of her delicately crafted work.
    Canada's Aboriginal Digital Collections
      Canada - Western
    Canada's Pacific Coast/Canadian Museum of Civilization - The displays focus primarily on traditional culture, while the exhibits inside the houses examine contemporary issues. Those interior exhibits are being developed in cooperation with the Native people of the region concerned. In some houses short-terms exhibits showing selections from the Museum's collection may be seen while the cooperative exhibits are under development. The Museum is home to the world's largest and finest collection of totem poles, many of which are displayed in the Grand Hall.

    Cree Culture
    Cree Canada - Western
    The Cree way of life today is the foundation for the people of Waskaganish. Cree traditions in our culture have gone through times of change, testing and have been brought back to life by means of applying our Cree values among the people. Today, traditions are kept alive with the tools and technology that are available to any Cree student, trapper or townsperson.
    Early European Contact
      Canada - Eastern
    Wampum belt - Among the First Nations of the east, wampum was most often used to measure wealth and for gift-giving. The wampum belt you see on the screen is made of small cylindrical shells strung together. In addition to being used as a means of payment, wampum belts also had ceremonial uses, such as the marking of peace treaties, the summoning of the various nations to war, or the recording of important events in the history of the people.

    First Nations of the New-France era
      Canada
    At its peak, New France covered a vast territory that extended from Hudsonís Bay to Louisiana, including a good portion of the great plains, all the way to the foot of the high mountains of the West. The traditions of the Aboriginal peoples, who through the ages had developed lifestyles that were adapted to these very distinct environments, were disrupted by European contact. In the following pages, come and meet the Native peoples in the days of New France.

    Tamarack
       
    This tree is also known as Eastern larch, American larch, takmahak, hackmatack, red larch, and black larch. It is usually medium to large-sized, with dark turquoise needles 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch long. It is the only deciduous coniferous tree in Ontario, which means that while it reproduces through cones - usually indicating a conifer - it loses its needles in the fall, a characteristic usually found only in deciduous trees, which lose their leaves.
