Project Description: 

In spring 2010, the Pitt Rivers Museum at the University of Oxford lent five Blackfoot shirts (collected in 1841) for exhibition at the Glenbow Museum, Calgary and the Galt Museum, Lethbridge. These important items of Blackfoot heritage bring together cultural, historical, and artistic knowledge. This site is intended to support teachers and students who wish to learn from the shirts.
