So how come da Pilgrims get one buckle on their hat? Pants, I can figgah. Shoes, I can figgah. But hat? Not like dat kine hat going fall off. Maybe supposed to be like one lei hulu. Uncle Henry used to have one lauhala hat wit one feather hatband. He said was from peacocks. Shimmering blue, green, purple. Smooth. Smooth like petting one cat. Everybody like touch um. Uncle said when you get one hat and one lei hulu, you special. And lucky.

Maybe da Pilgrims wanted dat. Someting smooth and shiny. Remind dem dat dey was special and lucky.
