"Lakota women's robes, late 19th century. You can see the impact of the recent conquest which disrupted the entire lifeway, not just land tenue of the Plains peoples. Instead of buckskin, navy trade wool; dentalium shell collar has old roots, and ribbonwork with trade satin partakes of a cross-nations style movement shared by peoples from the Potawatomi to those settled in Oklahoma territory, replacing quillwork and other older arts."
