Description: 
This jacket combines the ancient tradition of geometric painted moose hide with a European tailored cut and glass beads decoration. Native garments were designed to be pulled over the head rather than tailored with a front opening – the latter caused the loss of precious body heat. The elaborately beaded epaulettes are a Native interpretation of traditional European ornamental shoulder-pieces.
