A history of the Headdress - The Great Plains Indian Warbonnets are the magnificent feather headdresses commonly seen in Western movies and TV shows. Although warbonnets are the best-known type of Indian headdress today, they were actually only worn by a dozen or so Indian tribes in the Great Plains region, such as the Sioux, Crow, Blackfeet, Cheyenne, and Plains Cree. Warbonnets were originally made from the tail feathers of the golden eagle, and each feather had to be earned by an act of bravery. Sometimes a feather might be painted with red dye to commemorate a particular deed. Besides the feathers, Great Plains Indian warbonnets were often decorated with ermine skins and fancy beadwork.
True to the nature of all of our Gorgeous handmade products, the details and materials may vary presenting unique effects on each item.
