Our culture is so rich with amazing clothing, patterns, colors and styles , all of which have symbolic meaning. for instance the hat a lady wears symbolizes that she may be a wife . the garments she wears symbolizes whether she may be a girl, a woman, a wife, or a mother to be. The patterns on a maternity apron determine many things, among which is that the sex of the baby ”

“Historically the hide would are a present from my father in law from a search . The beadwork and style would are handmade & gifted to me by mother in law with messages and symbols of the family lineage almost just like the western family crest.”

“I’m so proud to point out off my culture during a time where such a lot creativity and evolution has made us check out the art rather than the rich cultural meanings behind the things we fashionably wear today.”
