This real headdress has a double trail that flows down the back. The feathers are white with black ends with red fluffs. It has white fluffs and red felt standards at the base. It has a beaded headband with side rosettes that are trimmed with fluff feathers. It has a felt head covering also covered with feathers. There are approximately 130 full size legal eagle feathers in this beautiful headdress.
After learning about Native American headdresses, the students will create their own!
Each group will be given supplies to work with.
The students may wear their headdresses for the rest of the day.
The use of colors might be as follows:
RED was the color of war.
WHITE was the color of peace..
BLACK was a "living" color, worn on the face to prepare for war.
GREEN worn under the eyes was supposed to empower the wearer with night vision.
YELLOW represented death, as it is the color of "old bones." Care should be taken not to wear a lot of yellow.
After learning about face painting and the significant colors, the students will pair up and begin the activity.
Students will move to each color station to complete the face painting.
We will meet for a group picture at the end!

PINCHING THE BASE
AND USING A SUPPORT
To start, pinch your thumbs into the center of a ball of clay. Squeeze your thumb on the Inside with your fingers on the outside of the pot..
2. Place the base in a hollow in the ground, or in a bowl shaped vessel which can be rotated easily by the potter as the pot is built up.
ROLLING, BRUSHING, ADDING AND JOINING THE COILS
3. To be joined properly, the coils should be roughened using a moistened stiff brush..
5. Add a coil. one foot or longer, around the inside rim of the pot being held in its support.
6. The coils must be firmly joined to the pot or cracks will appear when the pot dries.
PADDLING, SMOOTHING AND SCRAPING THE POT
7. Join coils in A spiral direction until a rough form of the pat is made, or until the addition of more moist coils will cause the pot to slump under the weight.
Paddle the pot to its final form using a smoothed cobble on the inside of the pottery wall for support. Paddling helps compress and strengthen the clay and decorates the outside of the pot with cord marks.
8. A smooth, flat scraping tool may be used on the pot to compress cracks or smooth the pot for more decoration
