Assiniboine culture, Great Lakes region, Canada
Late 19th century
Skin, beads, button and fabric
H.: 96 ; L.: 170 cm
Tunic made of natural skin fringed along its entire length, the armholes are decorated with embroidered beads forming flowers, a motif that echoes the rectangular band around the neck. The latter is bordered by colored fabric with floral motifs, the lower part is fringed.
Two long beaded bands of rectangular section are applied to the shoulders of the jacket. They resume the tipi motifs on a blue background. A red cross with four branches is embroidered alternately. These bands are worked according to the technique of lazy stich.
The presence of a button on the collar refers to the period of trade with the Europeans. In fact, at the beginning of the 19th century, the button became an object of adornment for the Assiniboine men, who notably decorated the locks of hair.
