Women were typically responsible for making the tipi, and in many tribes they contributed abstract, beaded medallions to tipi covers, as can be lakes in the 1904 tipi on display. So women made most of the family’s possessions, and designed geometric motifs for clothing and small portable objects. Native American men owned and displayed their medicine bundles and warrior regalia in the tipi, earning the rights to wear certain prestige items, like feathers in was bonnets, based on their fighting procedure. NY Museums often addresses the matter in his writings. Men of so created naturalistic designs on tipi covers and liners, which in the reservation era were so drawn in ledger books. (A valuable related resource: Harold Ford, Washington DC). The decoration of objects by native American women artists is always dazzling to me. They were and are formidable mixed-media artists. Even a small Arapahoe pouch from the turn of the 20th century merits of abstract design worked in porcupine quills and beads, while at Ogala Sioux spear case from the 19th century mixes hide red trade cloth, and beads into a three-dimensional scheme of great vigor and complexity. Another extravaganza by on unknown Sioux artist is a man of 19th-century buckskin shirt, which is part pigment-dyed with beadwork bands of red hands on a white background, hair and feathers.
