The Plains Indian warbonnet has become a symbol that the general public tends to associate with all Native Americans, regardless of their particular tribe or culture. The Plains Warbonnet addresses this misconception and covers the evolution of the warbonnet, the meanings of the feathers and how they were acquired, materials and decorations, who had the right to make and wear bonnets, and the several significant stylistic variations.

Full-page photos and color illustrations take the reader step-by-step

through making a regular bonnet, single- and double-trailer

variations, and the remarkable Straight Up bonnet of the Northern

Plains and plateau regions. Because it combines historical

background with how-to information, this book is now the most

comprehensive work available on this important Native American


Historic photos of Plains Indians wearing warbonnets and ceremonial attire are also included, along with a photo gallery of pieces by today's best craftsmen.
