A Case of Access: Inuvialuit Engagement with the Smithsonian's MacFarlane Collection (Project Summary)

Resource type
Date created
Inuvialuit elders, youth, and cultural experts worked with anthropologists, museum curators and others to generate and document Inuvialuit and curatorial knowledge about objects collected from the Anderson River region in Canada’s Western Arctic by Hudson Bay trader Roderick McFarlane in the 1860s, now housed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. Sharing and disseminating this knowledge in Inuvialuit communities, through anthropological networks, and to a broader public was an integral part of this IPinCH Community Initiative.
