In April 1997, the attached medals and headdress were stolen from the Nakoda Lodge on the Stoney Indian Reserve, near Calgary, Alberta. Both items are of significant historical value to the band.

The headdress is made of Bead work, leather, eagle feathers and horse hair. The tassels on the headdress are horse hair which is attached to the feathers. The front is red and white bead work and the sides are red and white leather.
The medals are both silver, one with a blue ribbon and one with a red, white and blue ribbon. They were contained in a wooden box with a black velvet lining, which was fading as a result of its age.
