Bead work in this series was collected by Reverend E.F. Wilson, principal at Shingwauk Indian Residential School and Archibald Wilson, Principal of Elkhorn, Residential School, Washakada.
The bead work is most likely from the late 1800s. Mrs. Graham, a descendant of E.F. Wilson, graciously donated the bead work to the Shingwauk Project. She said, "I want these to go back to where they belong".
Series comprises handmade beadwork objects. Series includes necklaces, moccasins, pouches, and other material.
