Dana and all, get thee to a powwow and get a look at contemporoary roaches. Worn as a headdress by Traditional male dancers old-time roaches were made of deer hair.The hair base was made of many rows of tied deer hair sewn together. The hair base was often clipped to give it a rug-like appearance. More contemporary roaches sport an inside row of skunk or porcupine, the hairs of which are tipped different from the base hairs. I would bet that Silver Wolf is sporting one, fancy roach! It's what every fashion-conscious Traditional dancer wears today. P.S. Powwow season is just starting--I spent Friday night and Saturday powwowing my heart out...
