Vintage Plains Hair Roach. Great Plains-Northern Plains Hair Roach (headdress). Natural and dyed porcupine quills finely tied and clipped deer tail center with natural red, yellow and white. Porcupine hair roaches are a traditional male headdress of a number of Native American tribes in what is now New England, the Great Lakes and Missouri River regions, including the Potawatomi who lived where Chicago now stands. The porcupine hair roach is often made of guard hair of the porcupine, the tail hair of the white-tail deer, moose hair, or artificial stiff hair; often, the hair is dyed a bright color, such as red or yellow, which can symbolize a veteran of combat. Some roaches from the southern plains are made with black turkey beards. Stand not included.
