Eeyou artisans made tinkling cone ornaments from the brass kettles they obtained from fur traders. Still used today in ornate powwow dresses, these cones were often attached as decorative trim. Artisans also made “tags” or “spangles” by cutting small pieces of sheet brass into a variety of shapes. The people used these to decorate their clothing or wear in their hair.
