  • From Northern To Southern

    Hello
    I am new to this place, so if I post incorrectly I would appreciate any advice.

    I was raised up on the Flathead by my foster parents and so I am most familiar with the culture there. However I am of the Osage and would like to assemble my regalia to fit my Nation.

    My dilema is that I am not sure what all goes into the regalia of a Southern Cloth dress for Osage women for traditional.

    My 9 year old daughter is mixed Osage, Omaha so I would like to assemble her regalia as well.

    I understand that this is a heck of a first post.
    I live in North East Ohio (near Akron) and have not been able to find any suppliers for beads etc... There is a Jo Ann fabric near me (heck their supply headquarters are only a mile away)
    Their bead prices are astronomical.

    I am familiar with the fact the Southern use ribbon work and applique. I don't mind doing the work.
    I am also in need of mocs for my daughter (everything we had was stolen from our storage back in Montana after we moved and before we could get back to get it all) this is a long story).

    I have contacted the local Cultural Centers and have not been able to get much information, as the people I have met are still trying to find themselves.

    Any advice and assistance would be most greatfully appreciated.

    Thank you

    Aho

              by samenulali
              Hello,

              I apologize for making one of these types of threads, but I would really appreciate advice in this anonymous setting.

              Lately I am feeling like I should give up everything regarding my native identity. I have done these things since I was seven, learning languages,...

              by cherokeemom06
              I have a couple of cloth dresses and have finally decided to put the time, effort and money into my first buckskin dress. I tried to buy one (don't yell at me, I have two small kids and finding time to cut all that fringe was a bit daunting! ) but everytime I almost made a deal with someone,...

              by bzybzymom
              My children are enrolled Sioux and I'm Cherokee, and not yet enrolled although working on that and hopefully by next pow wow season I'll be enrolled too. My daughter and I are dancing jingle right now, but would like to change to traditional buckskin. (my knees cannot take jingle since I'm fatter now)....
