A booklet rather than a book, this little manual will show the various articles of clothing one tribe or another wore, what they are properly called, and a little bit about how they were made and what they meant (if anything)
If you are looking for serious reading, skip this book. If you are looking for Trivia or additional knowledge - this is a good place to start. ( )

I have come from the far distant mountains...to meet the chiefs in council...We each have two hands, two feet, two eyes, two ears, but one nose, one mouth, one head, and one heart. We all breath the same air; we are therefore brothers...

It was common among my people to narrate to their children the history of the past, and they narrated to me that my tribe had learned to make clothing from furs which were gotten from Animals, and this clothing was comfortable during the winter time was well as in the summer. There is still some of this clothing remaining among older Indians of my tribe...The white man's clothing is fit for men to wear. I like to wear his clothes very well, but I also like to wear the clothing my people used to wear in the olden time.

I have respect for any kind of people...the only difference between myself and the white man is that his complexion is lighter than mine.

Wa-Kon-Kon-Wa-La-Son-Me (Umapine of the Cayuse), 1909
