American Indian war shirts were originally made using items found in battle. Traditionally, war shirts were earned by warriors for their performance and bravery in battle. Many times pieces taken from the battle were used in the design such as brass cartridges, pieces of cloth or even a flag or banner. It is possible that an outstanding warrior would own several war shirts. Each shirt would be unique to the wearer and would be decorated accordingly. Horse hair or fringe is almost always included, representing the wind to help move the warrior swiftly.
