“Plains Indian choker” is a short single- or multi-row necklace of hair tubes (so-called hairpipes), leather, various metal, shell and glass beads, which were originally used by Plains Indian warriors as a necklace and combat armor that protected the warrior’s neck from arrows, spearheads and even bullets.

Today, such jewelry, of course, is not used as an armor and became a part of a traditional jewelry, a must-have accessory for everyday and dance wear of a modern Indians and many white Americans. Chokers presented in the Gallery can be an excellent acquisition for those who are seriously interested in the culture and art of Plains Indians.
