Cherokee adornments

Q: I am interested in the meaning of and knowing what the arm bands, headresses, feathers and spirit catchers look like. How do you tell the difference between Cherokee adornments from any other Indian culture ?

A: There isn't any online picture gallery I know of that can help you.

There are a couple of good books with this kind of picture in them, the Encyclopedia of Native American Costume and How to Make Cherokee Clothing. You can find pictures of traditional Cherokee clothing in both of those books. The first one is available in a lot of libraries so you may not even have to buy it.

Good luck!
