The Hupa and their neighbors, the Yurok and Karok, had very strict ideas as to what constituted a well-made hat. This example does not satisfy the tradtitional criteria as it employs an untraditional cross motif and uses lattice twining to divide the three design zones. However, the other design elements are traditional: the parallelograms are called "set upon one another" and the triangles are "rattlesnake nose."
