Mon'-shon-pa-gdhon or Feather Head-dress. The only feathers permissible in this Head-dress are from the tail of the golden eagle. (Aquila chryaetus) Each feather stands for a war honor, an enemy killed or struck in battle, and the strand of hair fastened to the tip represents the scalp-lock of a man. This head gear was made with certain prescribed ceremonies, and like the War Shirt the consent of the warriors was necessary to its manufacture." All the articles used have a symbolic significance, and except the substitution of beads for porcupine quills and red cloth for delicate deer skin painted red, there has been no change in this Head-dress"(La Flesche 1898:9-10).
