Inuvialuit artifacts

The MacFarlane collection contains tools and clothing, which have been undisturbed for almost 145 years.


In the 1850s, explorer Roderick MacFarlane travelled to the western arctic.

He later collected samples of local aboriginal culture and shipped them to Washington DC's Smithsonian Institute.

The MacFarlane collection contains tools and clothing, which have been undisturbed for almost 145 years.

In November 2009, a group of Inuvialuit from Inuvik, Tuktoyaktuk and Ulukhaktok travelled to see the collection. They shared their stories and photos with CBC's Philippe Morin.
