Between 1928 and 1934, the French-American anthropologist, artist, and writer Paul Coze (1903-1974) made four trips across western Canada collecting ethnographic objects for the Musée d'Ethnographie (Trocadero) in Paris and the Heye Foundation in New York.

The photos below, from the Provincial Archives of Alberta, were shots taken by Coze documenting everyday life of Native Americans in Western Canada in the early years of 1930s.
