This ornament made of a sheath of feathers of frigate bird feathers, presents a human head, probably of an ancestor who was brave in combat. These charms, made by men, were attached to the nape of the neck of warriors when they set off to confront the enemy. They were supposed to protect them and make them invulnerable. They could also be worn during dances conducted during important ceremonies. More recently, they are worn during cultural festivals.
