I'm just going through tons of research. Talked to a friend today who will lend me a War Bonnet to work from. Gloria D recreates authentic Indian clothing. She actually worked on the movie "Dances With Wolves". I went up to her house this evening and borrowed a war bonnet. Her husband Joe Red Feather (Wee-akaluta) sat down with me and I shot this video.
I'm also trying to figure out the bow scabbard I'll be putting on the Indian and the shield design. Tomorrow,I'll start those two items.
