Record #171136:

Festive clothing and national costumes in 20th century East Greenland / Cunera Buijs, Mariane Petersen.

Title: Festive clothing and national costumes in 20th century East Greenland / Cunera Buijs, Mariane Petersen.
Author(s): Buijs, Cunera.
Petersen, Mariane.
Date: 2004.
In: Études Inuit = Inuit Studies. (2004.), Vol. 28(1) (2004)
Abstract: Study is based on clothing and photograph collections in museums, interviews in East Greenland and observations. There were no festive garments before Christianity came. Clothing traditions were deeply affected by West Greenland changes and by European influences. Some garments disappeared and others were reinvented or reshaped with new materials. Preparing skins and sewing clothing are traditional women's preserve, and skills were highly valued. Today skills and design are paid for, but still reflect women's qualities and sealskin shapes Greenlandic identity, with festive clothing important for rites of passage.
