In most tribes,men wore breechclouts or breechcloths (a long rectangular piece of hide or cloth tucked over a belt,so that the flaps fell down in front and behind),sometimes with leather leggings attached in colder climates.In other tribes Indian men wore a short kilt or fur trousers instead of a breechcloth.Most Indian men did not use shirts,but Plains Indian warriors wore special buckskin war shirts decorated with ermine tails, hair,and intricate quillwork and beadwork.Women wore skirts and leggings;they varied from tribe to tribe.In some Indian cultures women's shirts were optional and were usually treated more like coats,while in others,women always wore tunics or mantles in public.And in other tribes women usually wore one-piece dresses instead,like the Cheyenne buckskin dress.Nearly she had some form of moccasin (a sturdy leather shoe) or mukluk (heavier boot).Most tribes used cloaks in colder weather,but some of the northern tribes wore Inuit-style fur parkas instead.
