I made decorated goose heads for my sons. It is done to mark the occasion when a young boy starts hunting and kills his first goose. I had seven sons. Each time they killed their first goose, the head was skinned, decorated and hung up on display to acknowledge and recognize the boys’ first kill. I used many different coloured threads to embroider the designs and I would sew the neck and around the back as well as the beak. I learned how to do this from my mother.
