Craft Series - Regalia - Outerwear
Northeast Region
Abenaki and Chippewa

By Lynne A Pennington
I am going to start doing the regalia by Region for the Men only right now. I will be doing the regalia following the outline below:
General Dress
1. Basic dress before the 1800's

Basic dress and hairstyles, outer clothing, accessories including jewelry, if any, and embellishments to the body and face, if any.

2. Dress after the 1800's

Basic dress

 Footwear will be done at another time
There is a lot of information and changes to the present day as to the way of dress. Many tribes as in the days of old have adopted forms of dress from other tribes. My feelings on this subject is whom is to say who is wrong in their regalia and who is right. I have tried my best to put this information together. I will only be doing two tribes at a time and putting Resources on each page for information. The main resource for my information comes form the book:" Encyclopedia of American Indian Costume" by Josephine Paterek. I advise everyone to get this book because there is a lot of other information in this book which I will not cover in these articles.
