Split, beveled and polished buffalo horns painted dark-blue on the reverse, decorated with red dyed horse hair, ermine fringes and wrapped seed beadwork over buckskin at tips, are attached to the leather cap.

The cap of commercial cowhide, clothed with blue trade cloth and backed with old-style red calico fabric with a flower motif, is generously covered with ermine fringes and has 31 ermine tubes hanging from the back over a short trailer of blue wool trade cloth. The bundle of real eagle feathers is attached to the top of the cap.

The browband is decorated with red and blue cloth applique with white pony beads outlines. From the tip of each horn, a pony-beaded buckskin thong is attached to the center of the cap.

All works are done with linen thread and real sinew .

The bonnet is given an overall "aged" appearance to look and feel like a real old artifact from the Buffalo days.
