Crow - Indian CostumesCrow - A dance bustle made of feathers which was worn by the Dog Soldiers of the Plains tribes.  It was a badge of office and was worn only on hunts and at dances.  The name is said to have come from the fact that an entire crowskin was used in making one of its important parts.  However, the "crow" was usually made from feathers of whatever birds the Indians saw after a successful battle.
