Bo Dollis Jr and the Wild Magnolias

"Bo Dollis, Jr. is the son of the late Bo Dollis, Sr., Chief of the Wild Magnolias Mardi Gras Indians. In his role as Big Chief, Bo Dollis, Sr. helped to turn the Mardi Gras Indian culture away from violence. Instead, he encouraged the Indians to compete among themselves to see who could sew the most beautiful and intricate suit. Like his father, Bo Dollis, Jr. is a member of the Wild Magnolias; he continues his father’s tradition of using colorful feathers, sequins, and beads to create elaborate suits."
