«Cheyenne Feather War Bonnet (replica)» is an original one-of-a-kind item made by me in the genuine spirit of a piece that could have been crafted in the latter quarter of the 19th century and the early reservation period, in a style worn by the Plains Indians.

This bonnet features in Crazy Crow Trading Post - Native American & Mountain Man Craft Supply, world's biggest line of Native American Indian & Mountain Man arts, crafts, craft supply & craft kits.
