What Are the Differences in Native American Headdresses?
Most American children grow up watching television and going to movies. Older Westerns, both TV programs and movies, portray Native American warriors wearing full feather war bonnets. However, different tribes of different regions of the United States wore many different types of headdresses. About a dozen Great Plains tribes wore the eagle-feathered warbonnets; other tribes preferred otter fur turbans, feathered headbands, roach headdresses, horned and furred headdresses and basket hats woven of straw.
