The lifestyle of the Eastern Woodland Indians changed rapidly after contact with the Europeans.
Old styles and construction methods were applied to new materials and tools to create
sturdy and graceful clothing.
The Easter Woodland woman has a fringed buckskin Miami-style dress, with a leather Trade Belt. Her
Woman's Style Eastern Leggings are made of trade wool and are trimmed with ribbon on the
cuffs. Woodland Moccasins insure her step is as light as her heart. The fringed buckskin bag over her
shoulder could hold awls, beads or a fire steel -- all covetted trade items.
The "smitten" warrior is typical fo the Eastern "Lords of the Woodlands": a skillful hunter, a savage fighter,
and proud leader. He wears Woodland Moccasins - the true footwear of the forest, Buckskin Leggings with side
fringe, a wool Breech Clout and a Trade Shirt. He has invested a large number of beaver pelts in a grand
new 4-point Hudson Bay Blanket which he hopes to share with the woman of his choice.
