Art: Onondaga Gustoweh Josephine M. Cook, Onondaga, ©2013, watercolor & acrylic Text & sponsor: Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign www.honorthetworow.org Design: SCW©2013 2013 marked 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. Source: http://www.onondaganation.org/culture/dress.html
