Fur and Indigenous Economy


‘Chloe Dragon Smith and Robert Grandjambe want people to understand that trapping is an integral part of Indigenous life in northern Canada. “All that we are and what we have comes from the land, and trapping is one way we respect that,” says Dragon Smith.’

Full disclosure: I wear fur. All of my fur is vintage. I have sheep and reindeer pelts as furnishing. I am a Northerner and fur has always been part of our culture for warmth and protection.
