Vast herds of Bison once freely roamed the Great Plains. Tatanka is the indigenous Lakota name for the ‘Great Beast,’ which was nearly brought to the brink of extinction at the turn of the century. These majestic animals were crucial to the culture and survival of the Northern Plains tribes. Today, the American Bison is being reintroduced to tribal lands. This Head West custom hat contains Bison felt fibers sustainably harvested, and celebrates their return to the landscape of the American West.
