In Crow culture and various tribes of the plains region, the Women's warbonnet dance or "Shoshone Warbonnet Dance" (as depicted in the art) is a ceremony to honor the young leaders of our indigenous nations. This is the only time a woman is to wear the sacred warbonnet, the dance ceremony is the highest recognition of our mighty Apsáalooke women.

Her work is featured in the Apsáalooke Women and Warriors exhibition.

About Bethany Yellowtail

Bethany Yellowtail is a fashion designer originally from the Crow (Apsáalooke) & Northern Cheyenne (Tsetsehestahese & So’taeo’o) Nations in southeastern Montana. Bethany’s artistic vision and work is irremovable from her social justice vision for her community: not only does she provide employment for dozens of artists, Bethany was active in the No-DAPL and women’s rights movements, fundraising thousands of dollars through apparel sales, teaching ribbon skirt workshops on site at the water protector camp, and creating a silk scarf to represent the women’s march on Washington.
