CLOTHING OF NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE Askerova Narmin
Clothing of Native American Culture The clothing of Native Americans was closely related to the environment in which they lived and their religious beliefs.
Animal skins Plains Indian clothing was made from hides sewn together with sinew and decorated with quills, fringe, animal teeth, beads, and sometimes even the human hair of enemies.
Plant fibers A young girl dressed in a cedar bark costume. Native Americans often used bark to weave skirts, aprons, capes, and hats.
Woven cloth Although many tribes used handmade methods of weaving, natives of the American Southwest were the first group to develop a loom, or weaving device, for weaving cloth. In 1200 c.e., well before the arrival of the first Europeans, Indians in the Southwest grew cotton and wove it into cloth.
Breechclout A Native American man wearing several items of traditional Indian clothing, including a breechclout
Leggings In cool weather or rough terrain men and women of nearly every Native American tribe wore leggings to protect their legs. Women's leggings were similarly made of animal skin, but they only covered the leg from the knee to the ankle.
Skirt While the most common garment for Native American men was a breechclout, or loincloth, for women it was the skirt.
Headdresses A Chippewa headdress. Headdresses were usually made from the fur and features of sacred animals and were thought to give the power of the animals to the person wearing the headdress.
