By the late 1870s, the Sioux were forced to adjust to life on the reservation. Many of the men’s traditional activities such as hunting were no longer possible, but women were able to continue some aspects of their traditional lives. Beadwork continues to be an important creative expression for women to affirm their Indian identity, celebrate their skills, and show their love for their children. Beadwork with the symbol of the flag was also made for sale to Americans.
