I am however immensely thankful they didn’t go too much Hollywood and stick a full feathered headdress on him and have him do a lot of stoic “Ugg, shields at 30%, Captain Kemosabee...” I swear to CHRIST there couldn’t have been that many damn feathers in the whole US for the amount of headdresses in the movies.
A headdress is not simply a construction of Hollywood.

Here's Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (who is also a Cheyenne chief) introducing a bill on the floor of the Senate on the day the American Indian Museum was opened.



Last thing I need round these parts is yet another European patiently explaining my culture to me.

My nation also uses full headdresses as ceremonial wear.
