Description

By long usage the term “medicine” in the sense of supernatural has become firmly fixed in the literature of American Indians, and especially the plains tribes. A head-dress of the sort here depicted consists of some part of the body, sometimes the entire skin, of the creature that appeared as a spirit in a dream of the wearer and instructed him how to have its help, especially in war.
