Harlena Warford in woven Spruce Root Hat
The weavers were able to handle and inspect items to learn more about technique, style and proportions. This hat looked smaller then many others which inspired Harlena to try it on to give us better context. Interestingly, the hat looked well proportioned on Harlena.
Traditionally, women did the weaving and men painted the designs on ceremonial hats. Hats worn for daily use were not usually painted with designs or other further adornment.
