At the top in the center, is the headband patch which is given out to new joining princessess during the fall campout ceremony. The central theme of the headband is the sign of the eye of the Great Spirit with the crossed arrows of friendship on the left side and the circled heart of love on the right side. The symbols for father and daughter are next to the grouped tepees, which indicate happy work in the community, and a single teepee, which denotes happy work in the home. The trees, water and grass exhort the wearer to see and preserve the Great Spirit’s beauty in forest, field and stream. The two ends of the arrow along the top symbolizes "breaking of the arrow", marking the end of an Indian Princess' participation in the program. The fathers break an arrow in half and keep the end with the feathers attached, because feathers guide the arrow just as a father guides his daughter. The daughter keeps the half with the arrow on it, symbolizing the daughter's ability to take responsibility for her own direction. Below the 5"x7" photo you can choose to customize your message.
