Traditional Women's Hairstyles and Headdresses[edit]

Notes: sheetlets have descriptions of the tribes, and the hairstyle or headdress, printed on reverse. The first printing of the sheetlets had these descriptions transposed, for example the description of the second design (upper right) was on the back of the first (upper left). A second printing corrected the layout, reported as released on April 20, 2002 This information is subject to confirmation
