What kind of clothes did the kiowa Indians wear?

Kiowa women wore long deerskin dresses painted with yellow and green tribal designs.. Kiowa men wore breechcloths and leather leggings, and usually went shirtless. The Kiowas wore moccasins on their feet, and in cold weather, they wore long buffalo-hide robes. Later, Kiowa people adapted European costume such as cloth dresses and vests, which they decorated with fringes, ribbons, and fancy beading. Here is a site with pictures of Kiowa outfits, and some photos and links about Indian clothes in general. Kiowa Indian men didn't wear long warbonnets like the Sioux. Sometimes they wore turban-like hats made of otter pelts. Traditionally, Kiowa people only cut their hair when they were in mourning. Kiowa men wore their hair in braids, sometimes with a forelock or pompadour in front. Sometimes they wrapped their braids in fur. Kiowa women wore their hair either loose or braided and wore tribal tattoos on their foreheads. The Kiowas also painted their faces for special occasions.

What kind of clothes did the Mojave people live in?

The Mojave of the Colorado River area enjoyed a very hot climate where few clothes were required. Men often went entirely naked, but some wore breechclouts of woven willow bark, with a short flap in front and a longer one behind. No leggings were worn and men usually went without footwear unless travelling a long distance, when woven sandals were worn.

Women wore front and back aprons of woven bark, the back section arranged in a kind of bustle. Under the front apron was a short under-apron of very fine fibres. Women never wore anything on the upper body. Affluent women wore a collar of woven fibres, later replaced by collars of blue and white glass beads.

In cooler weather robes of rabbit skins traded from the Paiutes or Walapai were worn. No head coverings were worn. Strings of shell beads, shell necklaces and chokers were popular. Both men and women painted the face and body, or had tattoos covering the chest; women often had lines tattooed on the chin.

What type of drawings and symbols are on tepees?

That is a subject that can not be answered in the limited space available here - it would take many books to give a complete answer.

Every tribe was different; among most Plains tribes decorated tipis were the exception rather than the rule and around 90% of tipis had no designs of any kind. They were simply the natural cream colour of the hides used to make the cover, with the upper section blackened by smoke from the internal fire.

Among the Crows it was a tribal tradition not to paint designs on their tipis except in very special circumstances - the tipis were left as white as possible in most cases.

Some Plains people used traditional tribal designs (such as the Blackfoot); some designs indicated a medicine lodge or a great warrior with outstanding war achievements; other designs simply recorded particular events, hunts and battles of the past.

Not all tipi decorations were painted; sometimes buffalo tails were sewn all over the outside of the cover in a repeat pattern.

A calumet (a medicine pipe hung with feathers) painted on a tipi might mean that the tipi was the home of a war party leader or a medicine man; stylised horse tracks indicated a warrior who had taken part in raids to steal enemy horses; rows of guns might mean that the warrior had counted coup by taking the guns from enemy warriors in battle.

Among the Blackfoot tribes, white disks represented puffball mushrooms which had celestial connections and were considered sacred. Some tipi designs indicated membership of a warrior society, or membership of a particular clan.

There was no universal interpretation of symbols - each tribe had its own different system for recording war achievements.
