Background is light blue with overlay of orange flowers with black stems and centers, red and green leaves. Piped with dark blue on edges, red trim inside, cloth lining, fringe on inside exterior. For the native people of the Great Plains, personal adornment through skillful bead- or quillwork often expressed identity and culture though colors and designs. Contact with Europeans introduced new materials in the form of glass beads, cloth, and thread, as well as new styles of garments, such as gloves and vests. These colorful leather gloves, embellished with flowers and beaded fringe, may have been part of a dance or rodeo costume. Study of objects such as these reveals themes of personal expression, cultural adaptation, and the spread of trade networks in American and Europe. ", "Dedication" : "Gift of Katherine B.

Native Americans began to use traditional bead and quill embellishment on European-style vests starting in the 1890s. Beadwork and quillwork were primarily practiced by women for creative outlets and as an indication of industriousness. The colors and symbols could express important experiences or lore and particular patterns could identify tribes, families, or individuals.
