Native American War Shirts & Vests

War Shirt

War shirts are beautiful artifacts. They were not just interesting and attractive pieces of outerwear, but rather a sign of social status.

Before earning the right to wear a war shirt, an indian man had to prove himself as an outstanding warrior. Only those men who showed wisdom and strength, repeatedly unprecedented bravery in combat, were known for their selfless character, concern for others and the welfare of the tribe were honored with the right to wear this kind of shirt.
