Apache Indian Clothing

Apache Native Americans are known for their beadwork, especially the tribes that lived near Plains Indians. Beads were sewn on their leather war shirts for good luck. They also made beaded bags, arrow quills, saddle blankets, etc.

Apache men adopted the cotton tunic shirt and pants of the Mexicans, and calico dresses were worn by Apache women, imitating the clothing of Mexican women. Hide moccasins with beaded decoration were worn by both men and women.

Apache clothing by the 1800s, was beginning to become influenced by the U.S. Army code of dress. Apaches who had lived on the Plains adopted the dress of their Kiowa and Sioux neighbors.

They wore feather headdresses, long hair, and painted their faces in particular designs depending on whether the occasion was religious, festive or ceremonial before warriors set out to fight the enemy.
