The feathered headdress was a ceremonial war bonnet worn only by chiefs and warriors. The war bonnet was common among plains Indian men-sioux crow blackfeet cheyenne and cree-but was seldom worn on the battlefield. Reserved for formal occasions the golden eagle-feather war bonnet was a spiritual symbol of a man's courage and honor. It was a sign of respect that could be bestowed only by the tribe's elders. The bonnet was also believed to protect the wearer. Later other native american tribes adopted the headdress as simply a sign of authority. Today a brave or good deed may still be rewarded with an eagle feather.
