[Alabama-Coushatta Indian Tribal Dancer]

Description:

Photograph of an Alabama-Coushatta Indian tribal dancer at the second annual Texas Folklife Festival. He is wearing traditional garments and what appears to be a roach headdress, likely comprised of fur and porcupine guard hair. The headdress is tied at the chin. A beaded band with a large circle decoration at the forehead circles his head. A wide, blue beaded band, along with other beads and jewelry, hangs over his chest. He is shirtless; pink and white feathers are attached to his back. Other festival participants appear in the background.
