First Nations Parade

Most First Nations tribes had their own distinctive style of dress. People could often tell each other’s tribal identities by looking at their clothes, headdresses, and ornaments. For example, Plains Indian warriors wore special decorated buckskin war shirts. As native American tribes were driven from their ancient lands and forced into closer contact with each other, they began to be influenced by each other’s style of dress. Fringed buckskin clothing, feather headdresses, and woven blankets become popular among Indians outside of the tribe in which they originated.
