Wendat/ Huron, Native American

Not on view

An artist finger wove the chevron motifs on this exceptionally large and finely crafted sash, emphasizing the pattern through the incorporation of individual strands of white beads. Both women and men wore sashes of this type tied around the waist on dress occasions; men also wore them across the chest as bandoliers and used smaller versions as turbans. Although made of trade materials, sashes such as this one continued earlier weaving techniques.
