Ceremonial dress and stereotypes

Post  pinhedz on Wed Jan 22, 2014 3:05 am

Here is Mountain Chief of the Blackfeet Nation at a recording session in 1916.

It begs the question--is that get-up just what he alway put on when he got dressed in the morning? Did he wear that hat to all his recording sessions, or just the ones with a photographer present?

In 1869, 47 years earlier than the above photo, here is A-Tshe-Quog-Gya (aka J. B. Roubideaux), Chief of the Miamis:

In Russia, the higher an officer's rank, the larger the diameter of the crown.

It makes the generals look particularly silly. Rolling Eyes

a lot of people decided that "beehive" hair-styles were silly and so the beehives started disappearing, but you can still see them in Baltimore.  Who is going to decide what is silly and what is not silly... Team Obama would very much like these matters to be decided by the likes of Cass Sunstein Consultants LLP.  Are Russian General Hats a big goof? Maybe to an interloper, but an insider would know these hats are used as storage compartments ... commonly housing sundries like overflow medals or a goose egg snack

It only looks silly if it looks like you're working too hard--otherwise it looks cool. Cool
