Product Description

The Ribbon Shirt was and still is the classic "Native American" shirt in cloth and is worn by Feather Dancers, Straight Dancers, Gourd Dancers and occasionally by the "Singers" or "MC" at present day Pow Wows and Ceremonial gatherings. Originally it was worn by Native Americans east of the Mississippi who modified the basic Anglo dress shirt style somewhat by adding decorations and changing the construction styling. Appearing sometime in the mid 19th Century (1800's), and spreading northward up the Mississippi Valley and Southward and Westward with the Indian migrations. It is a very popular style with many tribes and is appropriate for wear with a number of different types of outfits, including street clothes.
