The reproduction of a nineteenth-century outfit marks a three-year collaboration between the Gwich?n and two Canadian museums to revive skills and knowledge employed in making traditional caribou-skin clothing. This book is an indispensable resource on Gwich?n culture and heritage, and on modern partnerships between museums and First Nations.
