Where In the World Did That Hat Come From?

*For All Ages*

These hats will make you think differently about what people put on their heads. They come in a multitude of shapes and styles and can be made of feathers and fur, straw, shells, stones, and bones. Each hat says something unique about the person wearing it. It can reveal the kind of environment he lives in, her wealth and power, one's social and marital status, and a person's religious values and beliefs.
