NOTE: There is no tradition for men’s patchwork pants. As with many southeastern Native American cultures during the early years of European contact, pants were rare. For the Seminole men, a long shirt sufficed for a daily outfit. Along with the Medicine Man coat, felt garters were used for special occasions and leather garters were for protection from saw palmetto during hunting. Only as the Florida Seminoles spent increasing amounts of time with non-Seminoles did men adopt pants.
