This is a wonderful Cassowary Feather Dance Hair Stick from the Abelam Tribe of Papua new Guinea.
Dance and tribal ornamentation is part of daily life in Papua New Guinea. When ceremonial dances take place it is due to a marriage ceremony, a yam harvest or an initiation. Headdresses and bird plumes are essential to creating their elaborate styles of headdress, or specific ceremonial items.
Cassowary feathers are dense strong feathers that create headdresses, hair ornaments, decorate masks and so many more items of celebration. They are worn in in woven hats or simply placed in their hair. By wearing special ornaments, men of rank would demand recognition of their status. These cassowary bird feathers used in all decorations were also valuable and used as brides prices or in exchange festivals, and in turn gave the tribal men power and rank. These particular cassowary feathers were strong enough to be bound to a stick and then put in a headdress. Cassowary feathers are a valued part of the headdress, armband, necklace and dagger. This cassowary hair stick would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home.
