This is a traditional French Canadian outift from the 1700’s. (not counting my boots…)
The coloured sash, worn by both french canadian and Metis people, is called a Ceinture Fléchée. It was used to not only fasten and decorate their coats, but for canoeist-travelers and fur traders, it prevented back injuries and hernias.
I took this photo because it was the closest thing we have here that resembles somewhat Sami clothing. It reminded me of Kristoff, so I just had to post something up. :P
