These are some of the everyday Indian clothes, and how they made them.
Indians, in general, wore different head dresses, clothing, and shoes. In the summer, men and boys wore a butt flap. Women and young women wore short dresses. Children under thirteen wore nothing.
The women made the clothing. They scraped the skins clean. The women couldn't have made the clothing, if the men didn't hunt. They made clothing from deer skins and buffalo hides. Beads that were traded from "white men" and other indians were used as the decorations hanging from the clothes.
The following examples of Lakota clothing were created by Clara Standing Elk.
