The style definition for this item is rather tentative. Structurally, 3-paneled breastplates are of a variety adopted by Sioux, since the majority of the Northern Plains tribes preferred the so-called «loop breastplates». But this does not mean that they did not wear Sioux-styled breastplates, especially in the late XIX – early XX centuries. Similar reasoning is also true for the symbolism of the Morning Star in the shape of the Maltese cross — it is the same for all the Algonquin tribes of the Great Plains: Arapaho, Atsina, Blackfeet, Cheyenne. Therefore, it would be more correct to classify this item SKU 2330.16.01 as a breastplate in the Northern Plains style.
