Dance blanket made of navy blue wool felt with red felt borders. A stylized wolf figure is appliqued in red wool in the centre. Part b is a small rectangular piece of navy blue felt with a button hole, for securing the robe at the neck.


This dance robe was made by Reid for Tanu Lusignan, the son of his adopted son, Raymond Stevens. It was meant to be for Tanu's graduation in 1993 but wasn't finished in time so Tanu wore Reid's dance robe. It was stored at the Haida Gwaii Museum until 2008, when it was worn by Tanu for his election to the Skidegate Band Council. In 2014 he decided to sell it at auction, which is when McConnell purchased it. Tanu included a letter with the blanket, outlining its provenance.
