Potlatch hat depicting Wolf


Potlatch Hat Depicting Wolf
White eagle down was scattered during ceremonies held by the cultures of the northwest coast to ensure goodwill. It was contained within the potlatch rings hanging from the dancers' hats and released by the erratic movements of the dancers' head. The number of rings signified the number of successful potlatches held, in this case eight.
