Museum gives headdress back to Cree

The Lachine museum has given a Cree headdress back to the Aanischaaukamikw cultural institute in Eeyou Istchee as a gesture of reconciliation. The Gazette version of the story has a picture of the intricately beaded piece, which it dates to 1850.

The Wikipedia entry on Oujé-Bougoumou has an interesting photo of the Aanischaaukamikw institute, which is constructed in a form derived from the traditional longhouse.
