Singing Beauty


“There was no mistaking the status of a Crow woman wearing her tribe’s signature gown of blue or indigo trade wool covered by elk canine teeth. Elk eat grass and twigs, but they have two teeth in their upper palate made for tearing meat. These upper canines, known as the ‘ivories’ were the only teeth suitable to use, so each dress represented years of hunting and hard work. This was especially true when elk were hunted with bow and arrow. Even with gunpowder, collecting enough ivories – at least 400 for a respectable gown, was not an easy task. When a man killed his first elk, the ivories were saved to make a necklace for his future bride or daughter.”
