Figs. 89 & 90

When you receive your Woodcraft Honor Band, you find that it has no button to secure it at the hip. The reason is that each member is supposed to make his own button, with something of his own personality in it.

I have before me such buttons made of wood, horn, bone, leather, shell, metal; one or two are antler tips of a deer's horn; one is a slice of the horn from the first deer that the man killed; one is an elk tooth; one a bear tooth; another a bear claw; one a flint arrowhead; one is a silver thunder bird; another a Mexican dollar; one a Japanese coin. All are fastened on with a thin buckskin thong.

A few are shown in Fig. 89.
