Eminence of the War Leader features an Arikara warrior in classic regalia. He wears a traditional buckskin shirt with a buffalo wearing robe. His hair is in a top knot, down on the side, with feathers from various kinds of birds. Feathers had personal significance--whether to denote counting coup or to convey the aspects of that bird to the wearing warrior. Featured here are eagle, hawk, crow, and magpie.
