Description: 
Native women in the northeast used an ancient fingerweaving technique similar to braiding to create vibrantly patterned yarn sashes. The woman who made this sash incorporated white beads to create a contrast in color and texture. Huron leaders wore sashes as an important part of their great chief's coats-a dark military style coat with moosehair-embroidered epaulettes and cuffs. The sash was wrapped around the waist several times and knotted in the front with the fringe hanging down.
