Beaded Baseball Cap

This beaded baseball cap was made by Sandra Kahentonni McComber, a Kanien'kehaka (Mohawk), from Kahnawake, Quebec, in 2004. Sandra (b. 1939), a descendant of Deerfield captive Eunice (Kanenstenhawi) Williams and Arosen, beaded the three Kanien'kehaka clans: the bear, wolf and turtle. The colors represent the four corners of the earth- summer, fall, winter and spring; the four winds; and the cycles of life. White represents north, yellow is east, red is south and black is west. The brown is for the earth.
