This bonnet is completely hand made by at least two women of the Navajo People. They use approximately 44 high quality main feathers tipped with colorful fluffs and genuine horse hair. The feather quills are wrapped & hand sewn onto a felt skull cap and is completely covered in matching fluffs. In the back center of the bonnet rests a single decorated honor feather especially cut in the middle of the skull cap. A thick row of feather fluffs are aligned on top of the wraps. Strips of rabbit fur is used for drops on either side of the front. The head band & matching rosettes are beaded by hand usually by the Zuni tribe. Colors & designs of the beads may vary according to the headdress colors and name.
Today this may be thought of as a crude wrapping but it is also quite costly as a treasured artifact. War bonnets can still be purchased with hanging coyote tails making this Navajo design unique and definitely a collector’s item. Coyote fur also hangs below Chickasaw turtle rattles.
Though the Native American Indians thought of the coyote as cunning and clever, able to weave his way out of difficult situations, today collectors of coyote items, claim that the coyote is the protector of the home. Since coyotes lived underground in dens, their homes were protected and so it is believed, you will be also.
These are are 100% hand made on the Navajo reservation north at least 2 or 3 native Americans.
