The late Tshishennish Pasteen


Some were fur and some were not. The fur ones were the Elders' favourites. They didn't have trousers, only flaps, like a diaper, no underwear. Also, the leggings went all the way down here...The women were very skilled in painting the designs. The women today would know how to make them too if they tried. They used mikuanapui (ink), unaman (ochre), and shiship-nimanimish, uakua (fish eggs). They used a lot of different things for pain.
