Seminole sash

This beaded sash was made by Lottie Shore from the Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation when she was 76 years old. Sashes are part of ceremonial wear worn by men during the Green Corn Ceremony, which is held in early June after the summer corn ripens. Lasting three to five days, this sacred celebration is a time to remember Seminole heritage, survival, and their future commitments to one another. Future leaders and medicine men are recognized. There are games, bonfires, traditional dance and music. (Seminole Indian Ceremonial Sash, ca. 1988‒89. Collection of the Museum of Florida History)
