In the Old Days pigments were made from vegetation, stones, soil and animal parts. These things were dried, ground and then mixed with with a binder (water, fat, saliva) to apply to the face and body.
The red stripe represents a tear shed for those that fell in battle
This plains Indian wears a headdress made of eagle feathers, trade cloth, beads and ribbons
