Much of the wonderful work of the Plains People has been lost over time, unless one is lucky enough to happen upon a great old piece.  Work of the Sioux, Cheyenne, Crow, Blackfeet, Assiniboine seemingly have vanished.

But the spirit of those great people lives today thanks to Native and non-Native people who are committed to and painstakingly and faithfully recreate the items used in another era. 

Here, you have the opportunity to share in those times past with our collection of hides and shields that recall the difficulties of the Plains People in the past.
