    i was brought into the arena the Otoe way. I wear the shirt and skirt w/ribbonwork.

    I was told that a I shouldn't wear red so other than that leaves plenty of options available as far as color choices. Right now all my stuff is green.

    I'm trying to decide on a new color to go with, but still thinkin...

          just ribbonwork skirt and top. Some ladies wear the camp dress. its a matching top and skirt with some small ribbon on the skirt and top and usually a flower print of some sort.

          also the mocs are low cut w/no flaps. just floral style beadwork that goes around the moc.

          traditionally they don't wear a crown or breastplate. But they wear scarves and the feather is usually in the middle standing straight up. Our feathers aren't supposed to point down...

            ribbon dress

            Question is, have you been given the right to wear a dress other than that of your own tribe?

            I know an Otoe dress is a tribal dress which is not given lightly to just anyone. Otoe women don't give or dress just anyone in their tribal regalia. That pretty much covers most tribes in Oklahoma. Most of them have to think alot of a person before they dress them and enter them into the sacred circle.

            I have seen alot of people dress in other tribes regalia just because it looks nice or that they want to dance that style.

            But, that's just a man's point of view.
            this is all i have to say

                  I have a question

                  Anitsi -

                  let's see i have my tear dresses but slowly moving into shirt and skirts(my seamstress advises me)

                  Why sould you go with the advise of your seamstress? Does she have the right to give away southern cloth of any tribe? Why not just follow your ways?

                  Like Pawtoeman says - Otoes and most Oklahoma tribes don't take this lightly. I sew for many dancers and would not even consider recommending that they dance in another tribes style of regalia. I don't have the right to give it away, so I wouldn't suggest that they dress in this manner.
