Native women took great care of their appearance. They preferred long hair and would plait it and fold it into a solid “club” which was wrapped in ribbons or even a shiny tanned eel skin. They would keep their hair shiny and healthy by applying bear oil to it and combing it often. Finely carved combs made from moose antlers were often gifts from male family members and were worn by women above and behind their head.
