The Plains Warbonnet: Its Story and Construction
Barry E. Hardin


The Plains Indian warbonnet has become a symbol that the general public tends to associate with all Native Americans, regardless of their particular tribe or culture. The Plains Warbonnet addresses this misconception and covers the evolution of the warbonnet, the meanings of the feathers and how they were acquired, materials and decorations, who had the right to make and we ar bonnets, and the several significant stylistic variations.

Full-page photos and color illustrations take the reader step-by-step through making a regular bonnet, single- and double-trailer variations, and the remarkable Straight Up bonnet of the Northern Plains and plateau regions. Because it combines historical background with how-to information, this book is now the most comprehensive work available on this important Native American symbol.

Historic photos of Plains Indians wearing warbonnets and ceremonial attire are also included, along with a photo gallery of today’s best craftsmen with examples of their artistry.
