National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame presents Hanskaska: The Shirtwearers - Plains Indian Art of Cathy A. Smith
National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame,
1720 Gendy Street
Fort Worth, TX

Ticket Price: $10 adults $8 students/seniors
The Hanskaska collection of the regalia of 12 Plains Indian leaders consists of the clothing and accoutrements of each personage as determined from historical photographs, paintings and oral histories. Each of the 60 items was created in the same way that it was originally made, using the same materials and techniques of production: Big Horn Sheep, antelope, buffalo, and deer hides tanned with brains, original stock seed and pony beads, naturally dyed porcupine quills, sinew or linen thread, and original trade items such as wool stroud, brass hawk bells, buttons, silk ribbon, etc. The only concession to authenticity was the use of hand-painted turkey feathers in place of eagle, hawk, and owl. The 10 Native American nations represented in the exhibition are the Blackfeet, Comanche, Crow, Hidatsa, Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, Southern Cheyenne, Mandan, Nez Perce and Pawnee.
