Once worn into battle and at ceremonies of a spiritual nature, the headdress (or war bonnet) worn by Native Americans of the Plains is now more often seen in the fields of music festivals. While the traditional headdress was comprised of feathers — each one signifying a good deed of brave act in battle — today, each faux-Bald Eagle feather could perhaps represent the number of light beers drank in the parking lot or number of times the wearer has seen Skrillex.
