This lot offers you a Plains Indian Native American coup staff. The coup staff features red ocher dyed trade cloth, fur wrapping, horsehair drops, and a rawhide wrapped handle and hook. The staff additionally has decorative bells strung between the hook of the staff, as well as an ermine or stoat drop, and a turkey feather draped from the tip. The coup staff was an essential tool in the honored practice of "counting coup" - Warriors won prestige by acts of bravery in the face of the enemy, using the coup staff, bows, or even touching with the hand - Each feather drop was included to symbolize a confirmed coup, if the warrior was injured in the act, he would dye his feather red. The coup staff is in good condition overall. The staff measures approximately 77 1/2" long, and 9 1/4" wide at the hook.
