Paul Dyck collection shirt
A beautiful shirt donated by the Dyck and Nielson families as well as the Estate of Margaret S. Coe, this piece shows us the functionality of the Native Americans' clothes. An everyday-use shirt, the only real damage is a few broken quills.
Made by Northern Plains Date:1850 NA.202.1184 This shirt also has hair and color beading. The shirt was made by deerskin, that was tan. The horse tracks could symbolize so many things, maybe a long journey on a horse.
