ACCURATE REPRODUCTION OF VINTAGE INDIAN DESIGN USED ON ONE OF CHIEF JOSEPH WHITE BULL'S WARRIOR BONNETS, Circa 1876.
Although I am NOT of Native American Descent, I have a love for Native American Beadwork, and have beaded commissioned beadwork for several Native Americans themselves.
I patterned this design by viewing the photograph of White Bull wearing his horned warrior bonnet, in my book Mystic Warriors of the Plains.
