Hello everyone !
Not all Indians wore feathers
Only the Sioux - who included the Lakotas, Nakotas and Dakotas - did wear large feathered headdresses.
But they reserved these adornments for their great feasts and their ceremonies.
The rest of the time, these skilled horsemen were much less prepared.
They wore hunter's outfits, much more convenient for staying in the saddle for a long time and shooting.
Bison were the main source of livelihood for these nomadic Indians, so much so that the US military carried out mass killings of entire herds in order to starve them.
Another cliché: most of the Indians were sedentary, the Sioux being the exception; they slept in the summer in tents, the famous tipis, and spent the winter in huts and cabins.
Good day and good game ;)
