Trading Women: Beads, Cloth, and Innovation on the Northern Plains

In The Farrell Auditorium

Sherry Farrell Racette, associate professor of visual arts, University of Regina

While the fur trade is typically discussed as a male endeavor, objects in museum collections bear witness to the importance of women in radically changing economies. Stitches trace the gestures of women’s hands as they transformed new materials to create clothing, accessories, and ceremonial objects.
