Native American Traditional Style
Breastplates


Custom Made
by
Annette Elkins Brown.

I was taught how to make these from a Lakota friend.
He liked the neatness of my work, but he told me the breastplate would not make it past 2 dances.
He taught me how to make these in the "old way". As he was explaining how breastplates were made, he would also tell me why things were done in that way, making me understand the purpose of the breastplate. I made a promise to him, to always make these breastplates with this understanding. As I make these breastplates I will always remember why they exist. Aho!
