The Paul Dyck Plains Indian Buffalo Culture Collection, acquired through the generosity of the Dyck family and additional gifts of the Nielson Family and the Estate of Margaret S. Coe
Head piece with all parts sinew sewn (through punched holes) into segment of a commercial leather belt to go on top of the head, and tied on with leather thongs. Pieces include wood carved to resemble split bison horn on either side of head, beveled and painted; cut feathers (either eagle or turkey) tipped with ermine fluffs. There are traces of contemporary glue adhered the feathers together and possibly the ermine to feather tips. The exterior of the belt is covered with a 1"W otter fur strip. Hanging from the back are long pieces (18"L) of otter fur, red wool cloth (14"L), shorter ermine strips and one piece of leather cut into strips - on either side of head- that are wrapped with quills in segments to look like seeds or beads. Fur strips are bound about half way down with horizontal strip of cloth and secured to that with sinew stitched through.
