Questions about Shawnee Culture

I am interested in learning more about Shawnee culture as it is currently.

Watching Stomp dance video and the various costumes or outfits, I wonder about the traditional and what it might have looked like compared, if there is ever any attempt to remain traditional instead of using non-traditional materials (plastics, etc.) in the outfits.

As well, what is the general opinion of these outfits? Is it something that is considered a "costume" or is it something that has more reverence and respect? I am obviously very lacking in any knowledge of pow wows in general, but want to learn.

I am not native in any way, but am a giver and sympathetic to native american issues, not for any personal gain, just knowledge and learning so that I can be better equipped to speak about these things with people when I give to them.

Thank you!
