Greetings and welcome to powwows.calm.....native afro....really ???

Mine is also NOT a Dog Soldier headdress/bonnet. I am not a member of the Dog Soldiers , therefore can not posses a bonnet of their type. Mine is just a feather hat. Some call it a Mandan although it really isn't that either. And The Gustoweh is an Eastern type of hat and is not the same at all ! All of these hats have certain similarities , but differ in type of feathers and composition. Some you must get permission to have ! Modern powwow hats are pretty generic. I've seen them made on ballcaps , leather skullcaps and canvas. Mine is canvas. Each feather is individually tabbed and tied in. Somewhere around 300 feathers. I don't post much cause I can't stand all the ads , but I'll check back in a day or 3 for any other questions.

Where'd you get that pic ? That was on the front page of the Austin Tx. paper in either 2008 or 2009. I made the paper both years ! They think I'm purdy or sumthin !

Thanks for the reply I wasn't too sure about where the origin of this style came from but my nephew *6 years* wants to dance and was looking to do this type for him...I will have to try this and improvise thanks again... Also it's best that i'd ask then not at all...i've been out of the powwow circuit since 03 just getting back into it with my children...it's changed so so much but it's always a great time....wopila

My question is related to the next step in the process (since the subject is back on the "table") would one start from top dead center, and "spiral" down like a rosette, or, if using a ball cap, go down the rows and fill in from there?

Thanks in advance!

I didn't make mine but the guy that did started in the top center and spiraled out. Each feather is individually tabbed and sewn in. He also threaded them all together as well to keep them standing out like they should , but not so tight that they don't move. I've seen some that were way to tight and don't move at all. Mine has some good action. I do know a guy that has one made on a ball cap. He said he cut the button off the top and spiraled out the same way. He also cut most of the bill off and beaded the part he left. It gave a resting place to keep the feathers off his face.

Thank you! That actually sounds like less of a headache than i was trying to make it in my mind's eye. And with the threading together...similar to a bustle with a continuous thread yes? Just trying to make sure everything is translating properly.

I know what you mean with the ones that are too tight, myself not for me, i like the bounce-able but not so loose it's depressed look.

I had a friend who is no longer with us, who used to get a wild hair and we would swap rigs for a weekend and he would use my fancy, and i his traditional and i always loved using his, he kept the bill on the cap as a base for a visor, but had trimmed it similar to a "cadet hat" bill.

Very helpful, thank you again
