Osage elder hosts Native American tribal fashion show

Osage elder Margaret Bird said she’s visited with several tribal elders and officials over the years and used their input to make traditional Native American dance clothing that is shown off by models.

On Oct. 26, Bird held a fashion show with 11 Osages volunteering to model the various Native American tribal clothing in Pawhuska for a bus tour group. The show was held in the Pawhuska Community Center with Bird describing the respective tribal clothing, which included the Osage, Cherokee, Sioux, Navajo, and Delaware tribes.

Bird, of Caney, Kans., said she’s shown off the clothing she’s made in various fashion shows across the country to several audience types. For more information on fashion shows hosted by Bird, contact The Waterbird Gallery at (918) 287-9129.
