research advice needed

Greetings everyone :)

I live in Pennsylvania and sell vintage clothing online for about ten years now. I recently came across a two piece native american leather fringe skirt and vest. Unfortunately native american clothing and artwork are not my specialty so I thought I'd search out a forum and maybe you can offer some advice?

The only clue I have that this may be native american made clothing is a small very illegible price sticker on the back of the vest. This makes me believe it's probably a souvenir piece? It's very hard to make out, but I can see that it says Tuscarora and lists an address in North Carolina but unfortunately I can't make it out. I did a bit of research and there seems to be a Tuscarora nation in North Carolina and I left a message on the answering service but haven't heard back.

Does anyone have any advice on how I can research the piece? I don't think it's extremely old - perhaps 60s-80s? The leather has some fading so I think it might be moderately old. I am really just curious about it and if I do end up listing it for sale would like to be able to include some information about it. I'll include one overall photo so you can see the basic shape, etc.

Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
