Back in the day, Kiowa princess' wore either headbands or crowns, from my understanding. I recieved the right to wear a crown when I became a pow-wow princess. But I also danced cloth and still do to this day. I never heard of such a thing that cloth dancers aren't supposed to wear them. I always did and so did my aunt back in the 1950's and 1960's. I seen alot of old pics of cloth dancers in crowns.
When I reach my mid-30's I'll most likely start wearing a headband. Some older women I think should do the same. JMO...

I have just begun to dance southern buckskin and danced southern cloth since I was 12. I agree with your last comment about older women wearing crowns. I have wondered about that for some time, as I am over 35 (old woman now) and I have seen some older women wearing crowns who dance southern cloth/buckskin. I was told by my mother and aunts that older women should not wear crowns but a headband is okay, and the crowns should be worn by younger women who were princesses and given the right to wear them, etc...
