Most artworks and items of craft were used in ceremonies. A headdress or war shirt is used as ceremonial clothing. Apart from this, there are everyday items of use like pottery, which are hand-decorated and contain beautiful highlights. Native art also serves as a means of earnings for some people. Also, elaborate costumes were worn by the leaders of the tribe to show their position. Leaders usually wore costumes made of leather, feathers, paints, and beads, especially during religious ceremonies. These artistic traditions are heralded the world over as symbols of imaginative and stylistic qualities.
