In Their Footsteps: A Century of Aboriginal Footwear in the Canadian West

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 23 from 6–8:30 pm

Museum Hours: Tuesday–Saturday: 10 am–5 pm; Sunday: 1–5 pm

The Musée Héritage Museum is delighted, once again, to be working with guest curators Bill and Michelle Tracy. Representing a century of creative tradition, In Their Footsteps brings together over 100 pairs of moccasins, leggings, slippers and mukluks in a captivating exhibition of Aboriginal footwear.

Featuring the stories of several of the makers, the exhibition highlights the diversity, innovation and artistic expression found in the strong traditions of the Dené, Cree, Métis, and Plains peoples of Western Canada. Selected from the extensive Tracy collection, the Robertson Trading Company collection, the Musée Héritage Museum and others, In Their Footsteps is a unique opportunity to see a truly beautiful array of footwear styles and decoration.
