Abstract:

"Among First Peoples, the relationship between clothing and identity is extremely significant. Aside from the primary function of protection, clothing can disclose the age and status of the wearer, reveal the nation to which he or she belongs, pay tribute to an individual's particular achievements, or evoke the close connection between human beings and nature. Drawing upon the McCord Museum's extensive collection, the exhibition Wearing Our Identity--First Peoples Collection focuses on the various aspects of identity that are communicated by dress and accessories. Whether building on the rich textures of the past or fearlessly transforming contemporary fashion, First Nations, Inuit and Métis use clothing to communicate the strength and meaning of their lives."--Page [4] of cover.
