leather, beads and dye
Cheyenne dress construction and ornamentation conformed to strict traditional patterns. The yoke of this dress is painted yellow with natural pigment, evoking the color of the Sun. Three horizontal bands of beadwork alsodecorate the yoke, one across the shoulders, and the others across the back and front. In general, rows of bucksin fringe, arranged in pairs, were topped iwht wrapped quills, but by 1880 the quills had been replaced by large beads. Thin bands of beadwork, natural red pigment, and tin cones on the bottom edge complete the costume.
