On Thursday April 13, beginning at 7pm, join OMAH’s History Programming Coordinator Lindsay Earle, and historian John P. Gaudaur Savage for a virtual talk about The Mackinaw Jacket. In the 1800s, Mackinaw Jackets grew in popularity, becoming the quintessential uniform of the lumber worker, but the history of these jackets goes back much further. With both Indigenous and European influences woven into the garment, these jackets have become a kind of Canadian folk costume.
