"In the Spirit of the Ancestors"-Twined spruce root hats were traditionally worn on the northern Northwest Coast and many were made for sale to outsiders in the late 19th century. Today they continue to be important ceremonial wear, displaying the crests of the wearer. The small ring of dyed brown spruce root around the center of the top is the artist's signature.  Primrose Adams, Alfred Adams
