[Last line from proceeding page]
[The women generally wear their] hair long, parted in the middle and in two hanging braids, adorned with beads or small strips of fur. The dress is composed of three articles the artegi or parkie (Russian), breeches and boots. These are generally of reindeer hide, sometimes of the fawn, sometimes the summer, winter or even the tame reindeer skins beautifully pied brown and white and only imported from the Asiatic side. The parki is distinctive between the different tribes, and the Mahlemut style is sketched on the other page. The hood is generally thrown back and only drawn over the head in very cold weather or when sleeping. In cold weather two parkies are worn one with the fur inside and the other as usual and no warmer clothing is used during the severest weather. The mens parkies are cut right around, the womens have a long flap before and behind. Both are bordered with long fur generally rossamorga? or wolf skin and a white strip of clipped reindeer hide both around sleeve and lower edge.
