The COMANCHE WAR BONNET is made by Buffy Sam of the great Navajo nation. She uses quality imitation eagle feathers tipped with vivid red feather fluffs & genuine horse hair. Horse hair is used in many items by Native Americans as it is considered to bring good luck. The feathers bottoms are wrapped in vivid red wraps & then hand sewn onto a felt skull cap which is covered in matching fluffs. A single decorated honor feather is positioned in the middle of the crown of the skull cap in the back of the bonnet. A thick row of black & red feather fluffs are aligned on top of the wraps. The brow band & matching rosettes are beaded by hand. Beading colors & designs will vary. Red leather fringes & strips of rabbit fur are used for drops on either side which imitate ermine. This striking war bonnet displaying so much brilliant red signifies war. The name Comanche is derived from a Ute word meaning “anyone who wants to fight me all the time.” Display it with your collection or wear with your regalia. One size fits all.
