The five shirts are all quite different. Three of them are “hairlock” shirts, that is, shirts adorned with locks of either human or horsehair. Another has intricate quillwork and long hide fringes, while the fifth has no decoration and is made of poorer quality hides. Each of them has stories to tell, stories that are now partially lost but that remain important to Blackfoot people today.

At the request of Blackfoot ceremonial leaders, these five shirts—and the spirits of those who made and wore them—came home to Blackfoot territory for a visit in the spring of 2010.

This book is about what happened: about how this visit became possible, about how Blackfoot people responded to the presence of the shirts, about the significance of these shirts for Blackfoot people today, and about why projects such as this one need to happen. (From Author)
