Armbands

Armbands are usually made from stamped trade-silver and are worn at the lowest part of the upper arm, just above the elbow. Usually, a one inch wide satin ribbon or ribbons, most often in a color matching the neckerchief and shoulder scarves, is folded evenly over the back of each armband so as to have the strips of ribbon about twelve inches long, hanging freely.

Historian: Nice work pulling these examples together in these threads. It takes time to do it so thanks!

Here is some more to supplement. I think these all came from the Smithsonian off the top of my head but that is likely to be wrong. Some of these may be wrist bands since I am not sure of the dimensions and it is late.

I think the ribbons we use off the armbands today might have evolved from how these arm bands were tied on. Not sure since I have heard many different stories about why they are there. but I am including a pic of a guy (Ponca I think) that has his armbands tied on with what looks like cloth worn through holes in the armbands as some folks use shoelaces today. In the pic, the knots are accessible on the outside where today we find ribbons. The other photo has nice armbands also fastened with colorful cloth. Thoughts? I think we discussed this in another thread a while back.

I think this is a very possible scenario. :->
