Notes
  • Iroquois women often don't and didn't ever wear skirts down to their knees... they wore what are none as leggings underneath them. These leggings would tie just above the calf muscle and beneath the knee. they would hang to their ankles, covering all the leg, showing modesty. Iroquois people also do not wear clothing made of deer hides, besides moccasins. They wore fabrics, and before fabric they wore woven pieces they handmade themselves. This is because the need to wear the deer hide was not necessary, they would often safe the hide for moccasins and other smaller things like cuffs, and covers for babies, seeing that it was so valuable.. they wouldn't just use it for outfits or clothing, they cherished it and still do. The native americans that often wear skins as clothing are more often found in the south than in the north. Also, porcupine quills often weren't used because of their rarity and how much they were worth, iroquois often still don't use quills to make traditional clothing today.
