This twined hat, with painted decoration made of vegetable dyes, may be a ritual hat that was treasured as an heirloom and worn for special celebrations. This hat depicts a stylized image of Raven, a supernatural trickster, who aided humans at the time of the mythological flood and remains central to the Tlingit belief system.

Hats like this one express the wearer’s heritage through its depiction of a clan’s mythological animal crest. In addition, cedar wood frames would have been stacked on top of the hat and topped with ermine, further communicated the rank of the wearer.
