    Beaded Assiniboine War Shirt and Woven Navajo Rug Highlight March in Montana Auction’s Upcoming Sale

    The Assiniboine or Assiniboin people are Native Americans belonging to the Northern Great Plains of North America. Known for their horsemanship skills, the men of the tribe were well-trained in hunting and warfare. Today, many of Assiniboine people live along with other tribes, including Gros Ventre. A war shirt used by Assiniboine/ Gros Ventre (circa 1885) is a key highlight of the upcoming March in Montana sale. This intricately beaded and striped piece is accented with a fringed bib. Such shirts were crafted for special occasions such as annual celebrations and ceremonies such as the Sun Dance. Another noteworthy lot is a watercolor painting titled Black Hank/A Sheep Herder by William Bill Gollings. The work was featured in A Gollings Sketchbook, A Collection of Sketches by the Cowboy Artist, by Robert H. Sherger. A Navajo rug woven with four Yéi figures and a rainbow guardian figure is a striking piece in this sale. It is decorated with a stepped border and feathers. The Navajo people view the Yéi as their spirit deities. Those related to elements of nature are regarded as the most generous.
