Pronghorn antelope horns are attached to a red pigmented brain-tanned buckskin skull cap and reinforced with buffalo rawhide on the inside. The tips of the horns are decorated with clusters of silk ribbon, and the top tips have additional decorations of ermine fringe, hawkbells, cock feathers and beadwork. A quilled buckskin thong connects the tips of the horns.
The browband is beaded in old time color pony beads and serrated along the top. On the top of the beadwork is a row of brass buttons.
The front of the braintanned elk hide cap is covered with ermine fringe, and rosette of clipped black feathers, while the top of the crown and back have clusters of cut and stripped red painted turkey feathers representing hawk.
On the rear portion a rattlesnake skin sewn to a red wool trade cloth trailer hangs down the back, terminating with eight brass shoe buttons, two buckskin medicine bundles and dyed silk ribbon cluster next to the snake rattle. The red wool trailer is notched on either side of the snakeskin and terminates in cut fringe.
The headdress is given an overall "aged" appearance to look and feel like a real old artefact from the Buffalo days.
