Feather headdress in Sioux / Lakota style, made by me of 34 hand painted select jumbo 14" turkey feathers (simulating immature eagle feathers) tipped with red horse hair tussels and fur coup dots; red trade cloth fire-crackers, natural white fluffs and eagle coverts above; the feather loops are made of stiff rawhide.
The front of the scull cap of brownish leather is covered with natural fur strips; the browband features the traditional Sioux tipi (mountain) design with white background done in lazy stitch;
Side decorations consist of rabbit fur drops (3 on each side), natural silk ribbons and a cluster of stripped blue-dyed feathers and bridle thongs.
The rear portion of the headdress is decorated with a saw-tooth clipped major plume tipped with a cluster of red hackles.
The headdress is given an overall aged appearance, looks and feels like a real McCoy.
