Hochunk Clothing

The typical style of the Hochunk people was basic. Men of the tribe wore breechclout and leggings, and sometimes a shirt. Both sexes wore moccasins or snowshoes (during the winter). Men wore face paint during battles, wars, and for religious or festive ceremonies. Men tied their hair in two braids. 

Women wore deerskin dresses, or tunics. They didn't ever go to war or battle, and were never allowed to cut their hair. They took inspiration from the early European settlers' costume, and made headdresses and clothing with intense beading designs. Today, men will sometimes wear jeans over breechclout, and women will put a broach into their hair for special occasions.
