“Western Canadian museum officials and historians have expressed alarm at an upcoming New York auction.
A Sotheby’s auction of aboriginal art and artifacts collected from across Canada and the U.S. is scheduled to take place in New York Monday as part of the spring auction season.
Beaded dresses, pouches and moccasins made by the Cree, Nakota and Blackfoot Indians, as well as knives, beaded sheaths and a finger-woven Metis sash, will cross the auction block.”
