Covered with pieced tanned bison hide (fur on interior side) that encircles the backboard, wrapping around the top and is wrapped across itself in front. Very top has a quilled disk in alternating circles of purple/black dyed and natural colored porcupine quills, with hourglass to top and bottom that has red and yellow dyed quills. A lower tanned hide fringe is attached, made of nine (9) hide segments, bottom hide portion wrapped in white quills, and then quilled loops in orange, dark and natural, and strung through dew claws. On back of top is pointed like a hood, with another hide fringe tab made into nine (9) segments with quilled loops and dew claws.
