DescriptionThis jerkin-style shirt was owned and worn by The Runner, brother of Chief Carry the Kettle, in the Horse Dance at Carry the Kettle Reserve. An unidentified woman made the shirt and matching leggings (913.14.26.A-B) over the course of a year. Edmund Morris purchased the outfit for $27.00 just after the dance on July 20, 1908.
