This hat, adorned with bird feathers, would have been worn by a Karamojong male as a visual emblem of status and wealth. The hat consists of fine natural bristle fibre attached to a woven fibre cap. A strand of fine red and blue early glass beads runs along the outer rim of the hat, and a small decoration - possibly a charm - coloured with natural ochre pigment features at the front.
The snuff container is made from a long section of animal bone, and is sealed either end with leather caps, decorated with small glass beads. Three small charms are attached to colonial-period chain.
