Glove

One of a pair of contemporary unlined commercial suede gloves that were repurposed for this regalia. It includes a buckskin extension, which is decorated with a fringe of long strips and glass beadwork. Prep blue dots on the underside notes where the deerskin would be cut to create the fringe.

One of several items belonging to a regalia made in the 1990s by Blackfoot ceremonial elder Herman Yellow Old Woman. It was presented to RAMM in 2022 in thanks for the return of Chief Crowfoot’s regalia to the Blackfoot (Siksika).
