mourning

What is this called?

Okay so when a First Nations person wears like, one or two feathers attached to a leather throng like a hair jewelry thing, what is that called?

Need to know because a character of mine is half Navajo and I want to have her wearing one in the books. I mean, if the Navajo even do that, that is.

Era: Modern day (story takes place in 2017)
Research I've tried: Google searching "Navajo feather jewelry," "two feathers navajo hair jewelry," "hair feathers Navajo," and "navajo jewelry names" which just came up with a bunch of images and shopping stuff but nothing useful to me. It's kind of hard to Google for something like this when you haven't the foggiest idea what it's called.
