  Just a short note to tell you that there is a fantastic book by Dr. Emil Her Many Horses at the Smithsonian's new National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.    The book is called "Identity by Design - Tradition, Change and Celebration in Native Women's Dresses".  There is also a video clip that goes with that that you can find on the Web. 

 

    I have a Kiowa Battle Dress, women's leggings, belt, pouch set, whip and a full size lance in the exhibit.  I am very proud of being included in the exhibit and the book.  I hope that you will get to see both.  The book is something that can be purchased from any book store, such as Hastings, Barnes and Noble and etc.
