Thelma quickly got Lyle dressed in a simple deer skin ankle-length skirt and a deer-skin bustier that showed her mark amply. She insisted on making her wear black bead necklace, which she said belonged to the ancestors. She had let her hair open and made her wear a tiara that was woven with the wild flowers of the valley.
