Collections Highlight E90052: Buckskin Coat for Doll

By Haley Bryant

This buckskin coat wouldn’t fit even the smallest community member—it was made for a doll! Despite its miniature size, it was constructed and intricately painted in the same manner as a full size coat would be. This wee coat was collected near Ungava Bay in Quebec, Canada, by Lucien M. Turner from the Nascopi (now known as Innu) Indians, and accessioned on January 9, 1884.  This coat was special enough to someone, likely Lucien M. Turner, that they drew a image of it in the collection ledger.
