They wore the skins of buffalo, deer, and antelope. Nothing from these kills went to waste, bones were used as tools, flesh for food, skins for clothing. Sometimes when white traders would come into their villages, they would bring trade items such as blankets, shirts, pots and pans. Pans were cut to make iron arrowheads.
The Indians of the plains wore many animal skin and furs. The plains were abundant with cattle so after the animals were hunted and cooked for food the Indians would dry their skins and wash their furs and were them as clothing.
