Santee Dakota gauntlet style gloves (stout gloves with long loose wrists). The cream-colored leather gloves have pleated seams between the fingers and at the top of the wrist. Each glove is sewn with leather fringe along half the length of the wrist seam, has yellow and green ribbons tied where the fringe terminates, and is lined with fabric. The wide wrist of each glove is decorated with quillwork featuring an eagle with a shield at the center surrounded by a floral motif.
