Wool and Silk Turbans
 
While I have no information to offer concerning turbans made from finger-woven wool sashes, or made from silk material, these types of headwear appear in many old photos of some Central Plains and Prairie tribes, both alone or in combination with a hair roach.

If anyone has any information to offer on this topic, I'd be very interested in learning more.

Some examples of turbans made from finger-woven wool yarn sashes, such as the picture below:

Too bad we don't see anyone wearing these at dances.

I've have seen one or two. The most memorable one was a VERY traditional Cherokee gentleman at the Nat'l Powwow. He looked right out of a history book, and wearing a silk turban with fluffy fancy ostrich plumes. Pretty amazing. We complimented him on his way into the ring. He sure was having a good time, too!
