    My comments are based on what I have been taught and my experiences over the years I have been around the circle. They should in no way be taken as gospel truths and are merely my opinions or attempts at passing on what I have learned while still learning more.

After talking to the family, I am going to post some info on what I can regarding what has already been posted and I am going to include some more. The pictures already posted and what I will post are all used in a paper/ discussion on this topic.
          <o:p> </o:p>
          Rodond, they said someone called the house looking for this kind of info. Might that have been you?

          In Powwowbum49’s second post, KBA Gilbert Mopope is from Ohoma society doings. The third photo is a set from <st1:place><st1:placename>Indian</st1:placename> <st1:placetype>City</st1:placetype></st1:place> (Anadarko) that is listed Kiowa.
          <o:p> </o:p>
          The pics I am including here are scans of the document that follows. Added emphasis is mine. The apron sketches correspond to the photos and in many cases belong to the respective families as mentioned.

          <o:p> </o:p>

          <st1:place><st1:city>Tulsa</st1:city>, <st1:state>Oklahoma</st1:state></st1:place>
          <o:p> </o:p>
          Subject: Kiowa dance aprons that appear in photographs belonging to the Mopope family dated 1914-1922, Redstone community located between Anadarko and <st1:place><st1:city>Fort Cobb</st1:city>, <st1:state>Oklahoma</st1:state></st1:place>
          <o:p> </o:p>
          Presented by: Carl and Vanessa Paukeigope Jennings, <st1:place><st1:city>Redstone</st1:city>, <st1:country-region>USA</st1:country-region></st1:place>
          <o:p> </o:p>
          These photos are of Kiowa men dancing their version of the plains wardance complex. This dance came to them through contact/ trade with the <st1:city><st1:place>Cheyennes</st1:place></st1:city> who had in turn acquired the dance from the <st1:city><st1:place>Omahas</st1:place></st1:city>. The Kiowa are wearing warbonnets, shirts, long johns, buckskin leggings and broadcloth leggings with Cheyenne-style beadstrips and fully beaded vests. Many family members remember their elders referring to these as “our <st1:city><st1:place>Cheyenne</st1:place></st1:city> clothes”.
          <o:p> </o:p>
          In the older photos long breach cloths are worn under shorter beaded aprons. As time goes on this long breach cloth disappears leaving only the apron. Feather bustles become prevalent as the dance is influenced by other tribes and the dancers travel to social gatherings over the state.
          <o:p> </o:p>
          Many have speculated as to the origins of the bold abstract and floral designs the Kiowa have begun to use prior to this time period. That is not the purpose of this discussion. I merely wish to present these photos for your consideration. They are bold, large designs. Generally fully filled in with solid beadwork, many of which have secondary designs worked into the fill, whether stripes, blocks or other organic elements.Most have double white bead outlines with contrasting multiple color parallel lines before the fill work is done. These are the same designs being used on cradleboards from this same time period. Medallions, mirrors, sequins and fringe are common.
          <o:p> </o:p>
          To contrast these Kiowa designs on aprons with others being produced at the same time period on the east side of <st1:state><st1:place>Oklahoma</st1:place></st1:state>, the Kiowa aprons have multiple units of single designs with more intricate elements incorporated within each unit. The negative space is rarely considered.
          <o:p> </o:p>
          Some photographs were so poor that only the basic shapes were visible. I am sure that there are details I could not see so some of the drawings represent only an educated guess on my part.
          <o:p> </o:p>
          Vanessa is pleased to share her photographs with you but she has one request. We have all heard that families own particular designs and Vanessa considers some of these private property. If anyone considers using these as inspiration for your own beadwork she would appreciate not copying exactly any designs here.<o:p></o:p>

                                by Gledanh Zhinga
                                Would it be appropriate to wear a lazy stitched or appliquéd beaded belt? If so, should it be mounted on leather with borders of nickel spots, as with the usual loom beaded belt?

                                by Historian
                                An outer belt is always worn with a straight dance outfit of any tribal style.

                                Among the Ponca, Osage, and Pawnee the average type of belt is usually made of stiff leather between four and six inches wide. Most commonly, a loom-beaded strip of geometric beadwork is mounted in the center...

                                I was given a set of beaded cuffs. They are black velvet with beaded flowers and leaves. The cuffs match my cloth outfit and I would like to wear them with it. Have you ever seen any ladies wear cuffs with a cloth dress? (I haven't.) Do you think it would be wrong?
