Honorer et Respecter: Dons des femmes Michi Saagiig au prince de Galles, 1860

In 1860, Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg women at Rice Lake Village in Ontario made beautiful birchbark baskets decorated with porcupine quillwork, as gifts for Albert Edward, the Prince of Wales, when he visited their community. In 2023, the baskets came home for a visit. This website tells the story of the baskets and their travels.

En 1860, les femmes Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg du village de Rice Lake, en Ontario, ont fabriqué de magnifiques paniers en écorce de bouleau décorés de piquants de porc-épic, comme cadeaux pour Albert Edward, le prince de Galles, lors de sa visite dans leur communauté. En 2023, les paniers sont rentrés chez nous pour une visite. Ce site Internet raconte l'histoire des paniers et de leurs voyages.
