Kiowa Calendars record metalwork being worn, exchanged, and made by Kiowas since the late 1700s. The calendars also show the early 19th-century metalworking and trade flourishing.

Native people have always valued adornment. It serves as a highly communicative representation of our beliefs and relays information about ourselves.         

I grew up wearing, gifting and receiving Southern Plains-style German silver jewelry. Indeed the first pair of earrings I wore as a baby were Kiowa made.

 Southern Plains-style metalwork is deeply complex because of its symbolism and rich history. Visually elegant, jewelry in my culture continues to function to strengthen our relations with others socially and culturally.
