Native American Indian Headdress and Indian War Bonnets

Native American Indian Headdress Native American Indian Headdress and Indian War Bonnets is the most colorful and picturesque item of Indian Headdress worn by the Native American Indian Tribes. Designs change from Tribe to Tribe. For instance, The Sioux Indian have a large flair and are a much more colorful and attractive Indian Headdress, while the Crow Indian War Bonnets slopped back flatter on the head.
The Blackfoot Indian made an Indian Headdress that stood straight up from the head. The Sioux Indian, Cheyenne Indian and the Pawnee Indian use only geometric designs in the beaded brow band. Indian War Bonnets were very practical on the Plains because there were no bushes or trees for them to catch on.

The eagle feathers were awarded to the Indian Braves, warriors and Chieftains for extreme acts of valor and bravery and were very difficult to come by. They are earned one at a time.
 

Regardless of where or how an Indian Brave accumulated feathers, he was not allowed, according to Tribal law, to wear them until he won them by a brave deed. He had to appear before the Tribal council and tell or reenact his exploit. Witnesses were examined and if in the eyes of the council the deed was thought worthy, the Indian brave was then allowed to wear the feathers in his hair or Indian Headdress or in the Indian War bonnets.

Sometimes a tuft of horsehair was added to the tip of a feather to designate additional honor. Coup Feathers (pronounced "coo") of the Native American Indian can be compared to campaign ribbons or medals awarded to our modern soldiers. An Indian would rather part with his horse, tepee or even his wife, than to loose his eagle feathers. To do so would be dishonor in the eyes of the Tribe. Many of the old Native American Indian Chiefs had won enough honors to wear a double-trailed bonnet that dragged the ground. Only the great and important men of the Tribes had the right to wear the doubled-trailed Indian war bonnets.
