This was the "best" dress of a
woman, made from animal hide and decorated with glass beads. She might
have worn it while she danced. Imagine how the beads would sparkle in
the sunlight, and how the fringe would swish and sway.
Bells sewn onto the lower part of the dress would
with her movements. Although we may appreciate the dresss beauty
in this photograph or a case in a museum, it was made for dancing.
