Requirement #11 of the American Mountain Men

11. Must be able to show ability to tan or Indian-dress hides.

This requirement is optional for advancement to Bossloper and mandatory for the Hiveranno degree.

While putting together your clothing and kit from Requirement #1 you will need Indian-dressed hides. (Commonly called brain tanned) This requirement will give you a hide to use for moccasins, leggings, shirt or coat. I have found the book Deerskins into Buckskins to be an invaluable resource.
