Governor Matt Mead and Marirose Morris, Arts Access Specialist at the Wyoming Arts Council, at the opening reception of the “Dressed to the Nines” exhibit at the Wyoming State Museum on April 26. The beaded and fringed buckskin dress in the case was worn by traditional women dancers during the years that Princess Blue Waters brought the Lakota from Pine Ridge, S.D., to perform at the Cheyenne Frontier Days. The photo on the right is of Princess Blue Waters and Governor and Mrs. Milward Simpson. The doll is dressed in a replica of the trademark dress of Princess Blue Waters and was made by Michelle Crowe, granddaughter of Princess Blue Waters and Marirose’s sister. The red purse is also Lakota-made.
