OST

A wonderful old Nez Perce

ensemble made its modern-day

debut at the Chief Joseph and

Warriors Pow wow in June. It

was worn by Marcie Carter

(picture right) in honor of her

great-grandmother, Mary

Amera Carter who hand- made

the dress many years ago.

The dress went out of Indian

ownership after the passing of

Mary Amera Carter, and even-

tually found its way to River

Trading Post. (See related story

in our October 2008

Issue.)

Although we understood that

there was a link between the

ensemble and Chief Joseph

(BlackEagle family), Marcie

has told us that although her

cousin was also BlackEagle,

there was no lineage tracing to

Joseph himself, and the heir-

loom was improperly attributed

to the BlackEagle family.

Marcie tells us that she will

never let this beautiful ensemble

go again. And we couldn’t be

happier.
