Make a traditional Oneida men’s headdress with Breezy Brzezinski. The traditional Iroquois gustoweh (meaning ‘real hat’) is an Eastern Woodland headdress. It is usually made of a Black Ash splint frame and covered with cloth. Split turkey feathers are attached to the crown. The split feathers represent peace. The headband of the gustoweh is adorned with a wampum band, silver band, beadwork, or can be left plain. The signatory feathers stand upright or off to the side depending upon which Iroquois nation the person is from. The Oneida have two upright on the top, and one pointing downward in the back. Maximum of 10 students, must have strong manual dexterity. The class fee includes all materials and supplies. Instructor: Breezy Brzezinski
