IMHO, I think it is up to the Headman in each warrior society organization, be it Ponca hethuska, Osage Inlonschka, Pawnee Iruska, Comanche War Dance Organization, or whatever, to set down guidelines of what is acceptable dress with well understood meanings, for members within their organizations. (BTW - Some organizations have "Veterans only" memberships, and some organizations do not require members to be Veterans.)

For Straight Dancers not involved with membership in a warrior society organization, I believe they should have the knowledge and respect to wear what is appropriate for the style and tribal tradition they represent.
