Nunavut, Canada Stuffed Doll Wearing Fur Parka and Boots with Beads (Close Up)

Handmade Inuit doll from Nunavut, Canada. In 1999, Nunavut separated from the Northwest Territories to become a Canadian territory. Nunavut was the outcome of aboriginal land claims agreement between the Canadian government and the native Inuit people (which make up 83% of the population). This doll is made with real fur and leather. She is wearing a fur parka with white fur around the face. Her hair is braided yarn, and her facial features are painted on leather. She has small, colorful beads sewn around the waist area and the top of the boots. Her boots are also made from fur and leather. The figure stands 13 inches (33 cm) tall.
