2013 marks the 400th Anniversary of the Two Row Wampum Treaty between the Dutch and the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). This treaty was a model for all Indigenous/Euro treaties that followed.

The Gustoweh
The distinctive feature of the men's Haudenosaunee dress is our
headgear. The Gustoweh is a fitted hat made of strips of wood. The
wood is then covered and adorned with eagle, hawk, pheasant, or
turkey feathers. The Gustoweh is also used to identify an
individual's nation. A man wearing his Gustoweh with one feather
pointing upward and another pointing downwards, indicates he is
Onondaga. A man who has one feather pointing skyward is identified as
Seneca. Each nation has their own way of identifying each other by
our Gustoweh.
