Costumes of the First People – a visit to the Royal Ontario Museum

Feel like watching a fashion show?

Visit the Royal Ontario Museum and view their rexhibits on the costumes of the First People.
These works of textile art are housed at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto and allow us to visit a very fashionable past. Despite the toughness quotient of their clothing, the tribes of the first peoples of the North America paid special attention to dressing up their dressing. With articles that made them spectacular – feathers, quills, wool, skin and more!
A brief glimpse to whet the appetite for a view of that vanishing culture through a visit to the museum!
