A wedding party was hosted in Halifax by Mali Kristia’n Po’l (anglicized to ‘Marie-Christiane Paul,’ also Christina, Christy Ann, 1804–1886), a Mi’kmaw basketry, beadwork and porcupine quillwork artist and model, with her husband, Thomas Morris (Maurice), for their adopted daughter, Charlotte, to Louis Paul, a young man from Hants. As the mother-in-law, Marie wore “a bright scarlet bodice and richly flounced pink skirt . . . a lady well known and respected,” and considered “one of Halifax’s most interesting citizens in the 19th century.” She was remembered as a talented artist.
