Surprise parka donation in Vancouver now headed to museum

Two traditional parkas were donated as part of a clothing drive to an organization on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

But once staff realized what they had – they knew the parkas had to be preserved.

Parkas, traditionally called Anoraks, are usually made from seal skin or caribou hide and ideal for hunting or kayaking.

One of the parkas is destined for the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver.

The other parka will be donated to an organization that has a connection to Inuit.
