Mi'kmaq Material Culture


I continued my research on the material culture of the Mi'kmaq.
Inspired by the cover of this excellent book by Ruth Holmes Whitehead...

...I worked an image of a bark house in cotton on evenweave canvas.

After more reading...

...I collected materials to represent the ones the Mi'kmaq used in their daily lives.
Now what to do with them?
How can I tell a story about how the Mi'maq lived in the Bay of Fundy?
