Wool leggings with spot-stitched beadwork
Description Woman's pair of wool leggings with spot-stitched beadwork in an otter-tail design. The leggings were reportedly worn as part of a Dakota ceremonial jingle dress made by Lucy Pair in 1905 (see also blouse and skirt 1141.A.1 and 1141.A.2). This type of dress was traditionally worn for ceremonial healing purposes and, more recently, at pow-wows. The dress was secured by a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution from Wheaton, Minnesota.
