Elk-teeth dress is epitome of Crow status and style

There was no mistaking the status of a Crow woman wearing her tribe's signature gown of blue or indigo trade wool covered by 500 elk canine teeth. They wore their wealth on their sleeves.

Because only two teeth from an elk are suitable, each dress represented years of hunting and hard work.
