First Nations Artifacts

First Nations artifacts on display at Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum

First Nations artifacts on display at Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum

A new display of aboriginal crafts and items for everyday use premieres this summer at the Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum. This collection of 120 artifacts was assembled by Calgarian Eva Hunt during her mid 1900s tenure as a teacher at the McDougall School in Morley, a Stoney-Nakoda First Nations community situated halfway between Banff and Calgary. The exhibit includes moccasins, a carved rocking horse, moss bags (baby swaddles that function as diapers), and a miniature corral. “Eva is a remarkable person,” says historian Anthony Starlight. “She donated these treasures to our museum because she felt this would be the most appropriate place for them to be displayed.”—JN
