She will one day pass these down to her daughters.
Most of my accessories are Heirloom.. Such as my 1920's Blackfoot Headband, which a girl traded from my Grandmother, my 1950 Wolf Paw Pin and Berry basket pin, 1970 moccasins from my mom, and a few other things. They dont have much sparkle but they are really nice. The wolf has a hand made silver concha in the middle. There a painted bag that I carry that is kind of old. Don't have any heirloom dresses though, just non-dress.

I have my grandmas buckskin and her belt and breastplate, and hairtyes, and my great grandmas moccasins. I wear my grandmas stuff from time to time.

I only have a son so I hope one day he has a granddaughter for me to give it to.

I bet everyones dresses are so beautiful! Well lets see I am of mixed blood being Choctaw, Cherokee and we believe Sauk(aka Sac and Fox from my understanding)although I'm not sure on that as of yet so can't really claim it, there is also a very small possibility of Creek but I'm not one to claim a certain people unless I know for sure. I have a Cherokee tear dress that I will wear on occasions, I also have been blessed with a couple T-dresses that I wear to powwow in they are made out of cotton, nothing really fancy as I like to keep it more simply and add the beadwork and accesories as I go. Then my adopted grandmother is putting the finishing touches on my Choctaw dress(I am so excited about it!).
As far as heirlooms, I was the only child born to the middle, and younger children of both sides of my family so there was not much left once everyone run through my families stuff when everyone passed(grandparents) however my parents did manage to get and now have given me several beaded necklaces, one wooden necklace(not sure if it is something from our NDN or white side) then the most beautiful Turqiouse pin that was suppose to be off of the Navajo reservation back in 1920! None of these I wear because I fear of something ever happening to them.
I was also blessed that my grandmother(the one I refer to as my adopted grandmom)gave me a beaded Medallion, and a roundcomb that I will cherish forever. She also let me wear one of her dresses and apron at a local social dance and I will be forever greatful of that(the one in my avatar).

I wanted to add I am still learning all I can about my heritage and their ways. I love this forum as I get to learn more in depth information from people rather then some of the ones I've encountered locally that want to say they know everything and then I find out they are not correct in what they say or have been told. THANKS everyone!

i Think todays ladies dress is to contempary. Don't get me wrong contemp is great and beautiful for competions. I am just old fashion i guess, but still love traditonal dress.
Well i am quater apache and adopted comanche.
I wear a red velvet long sleeve colar shirt with small buffallo conchos on my shirt, buffalo because that was the food souce and was very important. turquois jewelry, concho belt, a ruffle velvet camp dress or skirt. Hair tucked up. moccs.
i also wear comanch t-dresses the different design dresses that i have is american flag long fringe on sleeve, blue satin, red embrodiary floral, shell, turqouis color, and yellow and black dress with fringe on sleeve. i wear a breast plate moccs with fringe. with fringe represents not married. apron velvet with long fringe. i love the apron when dancing love. but to me less is more. and i was told to never where a green dress, because its a sign of mourning for someone. is that right? and is it true once u wear a jingle dress u can't wear a buckskin or cloth or fancy shawl? i was just told that didn't know?

im osage. my dress is still in the making as im switching over from jingle to southern cloth. so far its lots and lots of ribbon work, silk shirts (thank gawd tjmax and sears) and wrap around broadcloth skirt. my ma always said its better to represent yar tribe the right way. but im gunna go all the way out with beadwork. i got like tons of pretty brouches just pick and choosing. goin with a tie dyed shawl (meaning dual color fringe) with ribbonwork on it . fingerwoven belt and macaw fan . i know of a guy who does great feather work out in missouri. my ma said loop necklace and a nice silk scarf i should wear but i seriously would miss wearing my fully beaded choker with drop. no breastplate. with the choker can i still get away with fullybeaded choker or stick with what my ma says (for contest dancing)?

My traditional dresses are representative of my tribes and area... I'm trying to get one or two dresses for each of my tribes. I have an elk skin shell dress with painted diamonds along the sleeves in the old short fringe style. I also have a beaded nez perce short fringe of white German tan, and I had an old style cheyenne but I scrapped it for leather use. I am working on my beaded elk tooth crow dress. People tell me I should go jingle but I never feel at home in my ugly bad applique skills.
Anyways, the diamonds on shell dress are family. There is an eagle and two yellow bears on there. The shells and dentalia rosettes rep the old trade and my Dakota grandparents.
