Splendidly Dressed: American Indian Robes and Regalia
June 19, 2013, from 12:30–2:30 p.m. at Fenimore Art Museum
Come explore how Native people don clothing and jewelry, as well as deck their children and even animals in elaborate regalia to placate and harbor universal powers, to achieve success in hunting and warfare, and to show status and culture. Eva Fognell, Curator of the Eugene and Clare Thaw Collection of American Indian Art, will guide you through Splendidly Dressed: American Indian Robes and Regalia for a glimpse into the amazing regalia of American Indians both past and present.
