Dress Clothing of the Plains Indians
By: Ronald P. Koch
With 9 pages of color illustrations
Koch discusses such costume-related subjects as feathers, color and painted designs, native ornaments, beads, cloth, hair and headgear, and dance costumes. Although there were some similarities of dress among the Plains Indians, each tribe had its own styles, preferences, and traditions. The book is well written, carefully researched, and profusely illustrated...This book will surely become the standard account on the general subject of Plains Indian dress." -- Journal of the West.
"Those interested in Native American cultures will appreciate a book devoted entirely to identifying the variations found in the dress patterns and voted entirely to identifying the variations found in the dress patterns and clothing ornamentations among the Indians of the North American Plains...This is a valuable addition to this ongoing series." -- Choice.
"Anyone who enjoys visiting Indian powwows or who is interested in the heritage of the Plains Indian will find this effort not only enjoyable but informative. Highly recommended." --Frontier Times.
"Dress Clothing of the Plains Indians is an excellent reference book for an introduction to some of the differences and similarities of design and construction of Plains Indian formal wear. I recommend it to students of the American Plains Indians." -- North Dakota History.
