Colouring Accomplished #20: Beautiful Headdress of Cherokee

in colouring •  5 months ago 

Today, I used many Colours in the Headdress duck feathers. The colouring was beige, brown, peach and earth courts to match with the primary Colours like red, blue and yellow. All of these done in Happy Colors app.

Please do correct me if I am wrong about the Cherokee.

The colours are nice.

The Cherokee never wore head dresses like that though, the headless and war bonnet was further north and a plains Indian outfit. Lakota, Cree area.

And women never wore them. It was usually reserved for the leader, or spiritual leaders.

Thank you. I see now... Supposedly for Leaders (traditionally). But nowadays, anyone just wear it as a costume...?

It’s really frowned upon by First Nations when people wear it as a costume.

In a headdress, each feather is earned through doing some amazing for the tribe. Sort of like medals on a soldier. We get kind of angry when people just go around wearing them.

Traditionally it’s presented to a person by the elders.

I see. That's really good to know. I do agree, it's not something to be taken lightly. Thank you so much for the information.
