Native Americans are wearing Feather Headdresses which were traditions for "Plains Indian Nations."  This head gear was only worn by Plains Indian Leaders. Woodland Indians which lived in Vilas County did not start wearing such headdresss until Buffalo Bills Wild West Shows showed Native Americans wearing them and reffered to them as "War Bonnets." Also note these Vilas County Native Americans are wearing vests and breechcloths with "Woodland Indian" traditional florial designs. (Plains Indians traditionally decorated their clothing with geometric designs.) Vilas County Native Americans wore such dress for the tourists! Also note the Coup Stick in the center Post Card, this is also a Plains Indian item.
