Transcript: The Pitt Rivers Museum loaned five Blackfoot War Shirts to the Glenbow Museum and the Galt Museum during the summer of 2010. These are high resolution photographs taken by the Pitt Rivers Museum staff before they were shipped to Canada. These shirts had not been in Blackfoot territory for over one hundred seventy years. Groups of students, Blackfoot edlers and other community members were invited to take part in handling sessions at both museums before the shirts went on display. You can visit the Pitt Rivers website about the Shirts Project here: http://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/blackfootshirts The designs were made with Porcupine quills and Bulrush or Cat tail leaves. A indigenous plant of the Americas. The dye's used to colour the quills and plant material would have been made with various plants such as moss, berries and possibly ochre. These designs are a transferred right and could only be used if that person had made special accomplishments in their life. Not just anyone can make or wear a shirt like any of these. These types of shirts would only be worn for special occasions such as ceremonies or in war for protection. Only those with special transfers can make a quill design or work with quills. The person that made these shirts would have been very skilled as not just anyone would be asked to make such a shirt.
