Traditional Clothing

Traditional Clothing is an important part of our Native American Ceremonies. In powwow or traditional ceremony it becomes a statement of our connection to the old ways, the ancestors and the elders that have sacrificed so much that we can still have the spirituality that has always been so important.

In powwow these Traditional Clothes honor the elders and are often as healing medicine to those that are ill. Categories and Clothing have done much to cross over and bridge the gap between our Native American Nations to create more understanding and in some cases even eliminate old animosities.

From moccasins that tread lightly upon our Mother Earth, to the skins that honor our animal relations, to the intricate beadwork that diffuses and reflects the light from a life-giving sun, all the way to the feathers that represent our prayers to Creator.
