The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is “Fray.”Β  When the Plains Indians entered a fray, this is how a warrior and his horse looked (as presented at the Akta Lakota Museum in Chamberlain, South Dakota.)

  1. You’ve captured some serious fringes here… perfect for this week’s photo challenge.

    • Thanks, Shane. The fringes aren’t really frayed, but they have that appearance. I was thinking more of the battles into which this outfit would have been worn. If you ever get a chance to stop, it’s a wonderful museum.

      • I love Native history. My great grandmother grew up on a reserve here in Canada, and because my mom grew up in Banff, Alberta, I learned a lot about the Native history of our country. I’m sure I’d love the museum.

    That’s lovely! I’d love to see it in person. I’ve seem something similar in a museum in Alberta. πŸ˜€

    • The Indians’ lives weren’t easy, but they make many things that were not only practical, but beautiful. The museum has some lovely ones. I’ll be doing an entire post on them one of these days in the not-to-distant future.
