Native America Calling
January 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Today, January 1– Modern and traditional interpretations of ribbon shirts
(This is an encore show, so we won’t be taking phone calls).
From powwows to boardrooms, ribbon shirts are a visual symbol of Native pride. They can be subtle or showy, but ribbon shirts almost always have a hint of personal expression and tribal tradition. They are usually made from cotton or linen, often with long sleeves but not always, with colorful ribbons appliqued or sewn into seams as tassels. Like many Native fashion trends, ribbon shirts owe their origins and inspirations to a number of sources. We’ll spend the hour discussing the history and evolution of ribbon shirts.
