Art décoratif et vestimentaire des Amérindiens du Québec : XVIe et XVIIe siècles.
Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory
The author conducts a study of the Indigenous peoples of Quebec’s acculturation through a history of ceremonial clothing during the 16th and 17th centuries. Metal objects, pearls and fabric quickly replaced items made by Indigenous peoples; this can be seen as a way to make Indigenous peoples forget about traditional techniques and practices.
