Community & Ceremonial Life

The Community Life collection features major social institutions serving the West (government and mainstream politics, education, religion, and support organizations), and activist groups, causes, and movements, including western alienation, women's rights, minority rights, politics, labour, and the environment. The ceremonial life collection reflects forms of ritual and ceremony, including rites of passage marking births, weddings, funerals, religious observances, festive celebrations, fraternal society regalia, and cultural, social, and political events.
