Headdress made from two untanned, stiff pieces of bear hide with black fur on one side. Each piece of bear hide is shaped as a tall hump that narrows toward one end where it joins with the other piece of hide. Brown horse hair is woven into a strip of hide which is then attached to each panel along the outer edge, opposite the narrow join at the center.
