Painted moose hide.Beaver designs.
One of many moose hide and deer hide dance tunics commissioned by Tlingit Raven/Beaver Clan members.
The trim is mink fur. This tunic is painted in the style of a woven Chilkat robe.
Traditionally, Chilkat weavings were created from mountain goat wool and shredded cedar bark. The black, blue, and yellow colors were obtained from plant dyes.
