Ceremonial bear fur headband, with one horn from a young cow, and a rosette made a shell button sewn onto layered discs of green, red, and blue leather. The horn is surrounded by two concentric fringes of blue-dyed leather. Similar to the type pictured in Speck, The Delaware Big House Ceremony, p. 95, except that instead of two horns with a rosette in between, it has a single horn on one side and a rosette on the other.
