Traditional Mi’kmaq wear

The last few months I have had the privilege of teaching Traditional Mi’kmaq wear to a few women in Millbrook.

They made peaked caps and are still working on the Mi’kmaq outfits.

2 ladies have decided to make jingle dresses even though it isnt a Mi’kmaq outfit per se.

Here are some of the outfits that inspired us.
