Simple and elegant, these beautiful all-white beaded earrings are a reimagining of our classic freshwater pearl studs, designed in honor of the significance of the Head Lady in many indigenous pow-wows. 

"If you are not familiar with pow-wows, then you are probably wondering what in the world does ‘Head Lady’ mean?

Well, with many indigenous pow-wows in the US, there is a Female Head dancer (Head Lady) and a Male Head dancer. These two dancers lead all group dances during the pow-wow.

The Head Dancers are equal, both always dancing side by side. It is a residual piece of the matriarchy my people followed prior to colonialism.

In honor of women's history month, I intentionally combined the women's suffrage symbol (white) with the name Head Lady.

Now bearing witness to the appointment of Deb Haaland as the first Native American to serve in a cabinet position, I confidently believe that the matriarchy is flourishing.

So wear these earrings with pride, poise, and attitude, and carry the spirit of a Head Lady.

With love,

Brittany Turner”
