Glass beads, imported from Europe, were a popular fur trade item for the First Nations and Métis people. Beads were used to decorate items of clothing and accessories and were made into earrings, necklaces and hair adornments. First Nations and Métis people would bring in their furs to trade with the company and in return ask for glass beads.
