 NORTHERN PLAINS NATIVE AMERICAN WAR BONNET

Although warbonnets are the best-known type of Indian headdress today, they were actually worn by only a dozen or so Indian tribes such as the Sioux, Crow, Blackfeet, Cheyenne, and Plains Cree in the Great Plains region. A trailer warbonnet is a headdress with single or double rows of eagle feathers descending in a long 'tail' to the ground. All warbonnets were made from the tail feathers of the golden eagle, and each feather had to be earned through an act of bravery. Sometimes a feather might be painted with red dye to commemorate a particular deed. Besides the feathers, Plains Indian warbonnets were often decorated with ermine skins and fancy beadwork.

This reproduction of a Northern Plains Head dress is made with Hand Painted turkey feathers that look like Eagle Feathers.

Made by Leon Loeza of the Northern Tepehuan Tribe.
