Native american dyes - Red Onion

It is known as Christopher Columbus first brought onions to north america, but the truth is that onions were already growing in wilderness even before puritans brought onions in Mayflower. The native americans usually ate them raw, cooked, and even used them as spices or vegetables and other various ways. It was also used as a syrup, or toys(which I don't really understand), and ultimately in Natural dyes.

The natural dye processes of native americans provided themselves colors to clothings. It also provided colors to their hairs or body paintings that symbolized their tribe.

Red Onion was part of their sources in natural dyes. red onions DO provide colors to the fabrics, but it provides relatively lighter than other kinds of onions such as brown onions which provides the richest color among all the onion skin dyes.
