Wedding Clothes and the Osage Community: A Giving Heritage
Sept. 14 – Dec. 8, 2019
“A Giving Heritage” explores the history of bridal attire among the Osage, a Native American people. The exhibition features beautiful jackets, based on early 19th century military uniforms, that have a special place among the Osage.
Once used as gifts from U.S. military personnel to Osage leaders, these coats can be seen as a symbol of the interplay between two cultures, and have also come to symbolize the joining of families through marriage.
