Ethnic Cultures

This collection reflects immigration and ethnicity, cultural identity, tradition and change in culturally diverse Alberta and the West. Clothing and objects used to make music, furnish homes, prepare food, raise children, celebrate events, and more are associated with over 50 ethnic, religious, language and cultural communities from Europe, Asia, British Isles, and elsewhere in North America. Especially strong are the Hutterite and Doukhobor collections.
