    "What We Wear" reflects the Indigenous design found in the traditional and contemporary clothing and adornment worn by our tribal citizens. Traditional clothing or regalia are as diverse as the tribes they represent -- from ribbon work of the plains Osage tribe to the beaded Choctaw collar necklace or an exquisite Chickasaw finger-woven belt; they are all very unique and have specific meaning or purpose.

    Regalia can reflect an individual’s connection to their ancestors, family members and clan. Worn with responsibility and pride, a dancer's regalia, for example, is a collection of items that tell their life story and share their heritage, including many heirlooms and gifts crafted by family or friends.

    The work that the individual artists present to us here are a powerful mode of self-expression. They share personal aspects of their culture and daily lives through their jewelry, skirts, purses, hats, shoes and even paintings, showing “What We Wear”.
