Derek,

It was actually a Comanche who revived wearing the wolf head as a headdress at powwows.

This Comanche moved to Poundmakers Reserve in Saskatchewan, Canada. With this unique headpiece he began to win at numerous contests and soon others began wearing wolf, coyote and bobcat heads at powwows.
