Any information on these headpieces?

(Hi everyone! I'm new here, so sorry if I'm posting in the wrong forum.)
I'm interning at a gallery this semester, and we're in the process of organizing an exposition on Native American cultures. The gallery recently acquired three nearly identical headpieces, but unfortunately the sellers had little in the way of information. We know that they are about 40-50 years old, and that they came from a single population somewhere in the United States. If at all possible, could someone help me figure out where exactly and what tribe they might have come from and what their purpose might have been? I realize this is a lot to ask, but any information would be very appreciated! Here are three photos of one of the headpieces:
