Hair Roach Headdress

“This headgear is apparently called ‘roach’ in English because of it’s resemblance to the roaching or clipping of a horse’s mane which was considered stylish in the 19th century. The roach headdress of animal hair almost certainly originated in the custom, formerly observed by some Indian men, of cutting all the hair from the head except for a narrow strip running from the crown to the base of the neck.”
(Howard, 1958, p. 89)

White Horse - Pawnee - 1868


Animal hair such as turkey beard hair, porcupine guard hair, and deer-tail hair were added to the hair to add to the effect. Some authorities attribute the hair roach headdress to the Pawnee as a result of the legend of their culture hero Crow Feather. Other authorities attribute the hair roach to tribal traditions involving the resemblence of the red crest of the Pileated Woodpecker.



Today the hair roach has evolved to become a seperate headdress, and is either made from turkey beard hair, in which case the length of the base is usually a smaller size, perhaps 8 to 12 inches, or porcupine guard hair which can have a base from 12 to 20 inches or more. In both cases, deer-tail hair is added inside and out. There was a time that the deer-tail hair was dyed red to indicated that the wearer had been “tested by fire” or in other words the dancer was a warrior or veteran who had been in combat, and if the deer-tail hair was left natural or white the dancer had not been in combat.

However, these meanings are no longer strictly followed or remembered and the deer-tail hair is frequently dyed any color according to the dancer’s preference.

In general, the central and southern plains style of hair roach headdress will have the front hairs standing erect with only a gradual outward flare and are usually smaller in size, whereas in contrast, the northern plains style hair roach headdress will frequently have the front hairs flaring outward at an almost horizontal angle and tend to be larger in size.

It appears to be some sort of chemical damage to the photograph in the developing process. Photography was still in a crude stage at this time. The same chemical damage can be seen on his forehead and his shoulder.

A similar chemical damage can be seen on the photo of (Kau-Lay-Ty - Kiowa - 1898).

These are some great Roaches. I have 3 of my own. 1 a 15" roach I was passed down as a youth when I was roached, 1 I was offered a great deal for by a very good friend, it is a 22" in and out white, and 1 Turkey beard I made with in and out red. I also have a Turbin, but don't wear it much any more.

Were round roaches ever worn on the Southern Plains? They were out East. It seems to me that if you're going to wear a roach inside of a fur turban, the round roach would make the most sense. The Chippewa do that. I was just wondering if they did the same on the Southern Plains.
