Seminole-Miccosukee Jacket
late 1960s-1970

Clothing/work of art
This black cotton poplin jacket with alternating horizontal bands of colored patchwork strips was made on the Miccosukee reservation, where Native American craftspeople have long supplemented their incomes by selling items of traditional clothing. The jacket was purchased by a young serviceman when he returned home to Miami, FL, on leave from the Air Force in 1970. Viewing the jacket as a work of art, he used it as a wall hanging in his room back on base.
