Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was twofold. One purpose was to investigate the clothing worn by the adult members of the Wasco and Warm Springs Indians. Six periods of time were examined: Period I - 1805-1811 Period II - 1870's-1880's Period III - 1900-1905 Period IV - 1950's-192-0's Period 7 - 1960's-1971 Period VI - 1975-1976 Each period was assessed as to clothing and accessories worn, composition of clothing and accessories, and motifs employed. Comparisons were made as to clothing similarities and differences among the six periods. For both the women and man basic clothing items remained relatively constant, with variations being most apparent in decorative detail and clothing ac.:eeeories, The second purpose of this study was to determine if similarities exist between the present-day festival dress of the Wasco and Warm Sings Indians, and traditional Western Plains Indian dress. A number of similarities were found, primarily in basic costume items including the wing dress, poncho shirt, and moccasins. It was concluded that a diffusion of material objects has transpired bringing items that originated in the Indian Plains of the east to the Plateau in the west. Throughout the 200 years that trade items have been diffused, the reasons for the existence of a diffusion system have changed. Today Indian clothing consists largely of items originally worn primarily by the Plains Indians. The Wasco and Warm Springs Indians appear to play the standardized Indian role in the presence of whites, and wear many of the same basic clothing items during their festivals that were worn by the Western Plains Indians during the middle of the 19th century.
