Ta-he'-wa-gdhon or Deer-tail Head-dress. The deer's tail and the tufts of bristles from the neck of the wild turkey are used to make this head-dress. The feather is from the tail of the golden eagle and is kept erect and in place by the bone fastener into which the feather is set. Through this fastener the wearer's scalp-lock is passed and tied, by which means the ornament is held firmly at the top, while the lower part is kept in place by slender thongs tied under the chin. Like all other articles of regalia this head-dress had its peculiar significance and represented was honors"(La Flesche 1898:12-13).
