Peyote Jewelry and the Making of Region
Silversmiths made objects that were beautiful and that could render important symbols of the Native American Church. They communicated ideas and images that served as public representations of this religion as Native people exchanged these objects. The emergence and spread of Peyotism from the Kiowa, Comanche, and Apache reservation began to generate new Kiowa and American Indian identities. The jewellery and emerging identities parallel one another. Kiowas and others communicated these changes through painting, photography, clothing, and through jewellery itself.
