Identity by Design, Native Women's Dress


This is a comprehensive exhibit that examines the traditions, changes, and celebrations found in the dress of Native American women of the nineteenth-century Great Plains, Great Basin, and Plateau tribal regions. The exhibition accomplishes many things at once, including promoting an appreciation of Native women's artistry and an understanding of the influence of trade goods on Native American culture. Archival photos, maps, and animations enrich the site, which also touches on the powwow experience, dress as a function of cultural identity, and the innovations of nineteenth-century dressmakers.
