A gentle introduction to the Aboriginal Peoples of Canada through something we all wear, shoes! Aboriginal Peoples of Canada wear moccasins for warmth, protection and to show off their style. Discover the natural materials used to make moccasins and different kinds of patterns to embellish them with.

Students will learn about geometric and repeating patterns. After seeing moccasins from the museum collections students will have the opportunity to design their own paper moccasins.
