Uashat mak Mani-Utenam

The objects surrounding us are priceless for what they tell of our history. Here, objects were chosen by the members of the Uashat mak Mani-Utenam community in order to constitute a collection showing what is important to them.

Louisa Rock Michel has selected this item because ...

I want to show the children so they see how we lived in the old days. Young people had to know their prayers. Young people who didn't know how to pray couldn't receive their first communion.
