Reenactments/Plays of First Thanksgiving

This is from Anne Rockwell's book Thanksgiving Day. The children in this classroom are making headdresses with construction paper. And, they're using paperbags to make an Indian shirt. This is commonly done, but contributes to the stereotypical idea that all Indians wore/wear the same clothes: fringed buckskin.

What books could I obtain for my class of first graders that would show clothing, headpieces, as opposed to typical fringed buckskin outfits?
