How to Choose and Fit a Cuff Bracelet

Coup

Coup - comes from the French and is pronounced "coo". The dictionary definition of coup is a successful stroke, act, or move; a clever action or accomplishment. To an Indian, coup usually mean "war count". But coup is also thought of as an "honor count" or measure of bravery.

Coup can range from a well-spoken word, an honorable deed, stealing an enemy's horse, to a slap or strike with a stick to killing and scalping an enemy.

Western gunfighters also used a system of marking coup by carving notches in the handle of their guns for every man they killed.
Indian coup is counted and kept track of by making marks on a stick or bow or personal adornments or painting marks on one's horse. Feathers were given for coup and were used singly in the hair, on staffs or in bonnets. Bear claws were also given as coup to be used in necklaces.
