Quilled coat

Color image of a Quilled coat, ca. 1851.


This style of coat was popular with the Métis of the Red River Valley. This particular coat belonged to Alexander Ramsey and may have been brought back by him from an 1851 treaty signing. The coat is possibly Cree, Métis, or Ojibwe in origin.
