Koch, Ronald P.
Dress Clothing of the Plains Indians


1 in stock


[Koch] discusses such costume-related subjects as feathers, colour 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.

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.

A reprint from the 1932 edition with 9 pages of colour illustrations.
