What Did the Jumano Indians Wear?

The Jumano Indians wore garments made from different animal hides, including moccasins. Women often wore skirts, short-sleeve tunics and aprons.

Men typically wore pants and capes. Both men and women would wear cloaks to protect their skin from the cold and the wind. Men had short hair that they often covered with paint. Women grew their hair long and kept it braided.

The Jumano Indians are often referred to as the “Naked Indians,” because they spent a lot of time without clothing. The Indians used paint and other items to adorn themselves with tattoos. They also used features as adornments.
