Beaded work has blurred traditional tribal distinctions. While tribal designs used to be exclusively for one tribe, many Native Americans now employ patterns and designs that they find appealing. They use colors and patterns from several different groups and cultures. The Sioux, for example, preferred a white background with bold colors, including a distinctive shade of pink. The Cheyenne shared this preference, but instead of white, they used bright red and turquoise. In contrast, the Cherokee and Ojibwa prefer different colors and patterns.
