    The I Love Seneca Nation T-Shirt was designed by the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum. The silver brooch pictured is a modern piece and is from the collection of the museum. Silver brooches were traded to Iroquois people beginning in the 18th century. They were used as clothing adornments. Some designs made long ago include hearts, circles, crosses and more. Today, some Native silversmiths still produce and reproduce certain silver brooches.
