Hi my name is Tina, from a tribe called Cherokee from the southestern woodlands of the USA. I want you to know more about us.
We elaborate dresses that are enjoyed during celebrations, Pow-Wows, and ceremonies and costumes of an exaggerated style are still worn today.
The Cherokee warriors wore Mohawk headdresses and often shaved their heads around a long single pony tail on the crown. They fashioned bones and jewelry breastplates, sashes and hide clothing and moccasins.
The Cherokee women’s traditional dress were long deerskin wrap around straight skirts and fringed sleeved tops. They incorporated furs in the bitter winter months. Beading and decoration was common among the Cherokee as well as accessorizing with head pieces, beaded satchels , bone breastplates and jewelry.
Today there are reservations in North Carolina with about 10,000 Cherokee and Oklahoma with about 100,000 Cherokee. Many are mix bloods rather than full bloods.
