SINEW


SINEW—I have been among the Sioux Indians in S. Dakota. And Man., and have seen them doing bead work on moccasins. I would like to know how they make the sinew used for this work. Some say that it is made of the intestines of a beef and others say that it is procured from the deer.

I do not know what is used by the Sioux Indians for sewing, probably catgut, which may be made from the intestines of any large animal, but if it is really sinew it is not made from the intestines at all. The Chippewa Indians use the long sinew lying along the backbone of moose, deer, etc. There are two strips of this, one on either side of the spinal column and they are removed, cleaned of all flesh and partly dried then twisted to separate the shreds and pulled into long strings. It is used by the bush Indians for sewing moccasins, etc.
