I have a question for the NE woodland experts out there. What type of headress (bonnet)would a Chief of the Lenapes have worn? if any. I have a group of OA scouts in New Jersey that I would like to convert from midwest NA war bonnets( which just about all OA lodges wear) to Lenape regalia (contact-F&I-Rev war period) Would they have worn something simila to the Iriquois Gustowa? Any help appreciated.

I have been through this with my lodge, in southern West Virginia, and it is a great cause. However, last time I asked for help for the scout it started a war online with the reenactors. I think the people that use this forum are educated enough to see a good cause, and to realize that some of us wish to see the scouting program correct its misinterpretations and stereotypes of Native Americans.

I have some power points and other headdress info on my flash drive at the office. PM me and I will email you with what I have.


You can go a couple of directions with headdress. Deer roaches, like the quilled one in the Peabody?.

Also the examples of the quilled headband-ish ones with the tuff of feathers in the front and back. I think these tend to be more Iroquois. These are in collections in the UK, and in the book "Three Centuries of Woodland Indian Art".

Gustoweahs are more 19th century from what I've seen, but our lodge does use one. With the scouts you don't really need to narrow down to just F&I, unless you are doing a group dance at NOAC.

For my class on headdress at Conclave I even made one like in the painting of Powhatan. The band with upright feathers, to showcase the coast woodland natives.


IMHO,

Jon McKenzie
