Yankton Dakota painted and beaded hide shirt
Description Hide shirt reportedly belonged to Chief Black Catfish of the Yankton Dakota. The shirt's shape is based on the natural contours of the hides and has long sleeves with a cape-like upper arm. The shirt is painted yellow on the bottom and brown and blue on the top. Bands of quill work decorate the shoulders and sleeves. The shirt was collected by Colonel John G. Clark of the 50th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment at Fort Rice in Dakota Territory during the 1862 U.S.-Dakota War.
