Description

Large Coat, woven of cat-tail rushes, described by Eells p.116: "It extended down before and behind from the shoulders half-way from the hips to the knees, and was fastened together at the sides. There was a hole for the neck, and one for each arm, and it was put on over the head." He reported that the Twana no longer wore this style at the time, and he had had this one made for the World's Columbian Exposition in 1892. Post Treaty/Reservation Period
