I picked this wonderful hat in Cambodia. Some guy was selling off his Hill Tribe collection. I did some research online and it looks like it might be a Naga tribe hat. Can anyone confirm this?

Thank you in advance for your input!

I think it's a souvenir for tourist, not a genuine artifact. Valentin

Hi Julie-
I have seen a variety of these hats around Chiang Mai, but do not know just how authentic they are. They appear to have been made using many of the same materials as Naga hats, but without going there and observing them being used it is difficult to know for sure. You could do some online searches for Naga festivals, both modern and in the past, and check out the images and see if any of the hats being worn are like yours. Hope this helps.

Hello,

to me it looks a "bit much decoration" - especially the cowries look to clean compared to the rest of the cane weaving.

But taking only this picture its hard to tell.

If you want you can check which material they used to fix the "deco" on the hat and also to check wearing conditions and patina especially on the inside.

regards
udo

Thank you kindly for your input. Just tracked down a very similar image which claims the hat is:

Subject: ang chief
Culture: Konyak / Eastern Naga
Setting: tribal warfare, Nagaland mid-late 19thc
Object: akutsu 'kekkoh helmet

Here's the link the article:

http://www.forensicfashion.com/1870KonyakChief.html

Of course, it is Asia so copies are a possibililty.
