Aleut men wore wooden visors while hunting. These visors kept off the rain and kept the animals they were hunting from seeing their eyes. They thought the animals would not be scared away if they didn't see their eyes. The visor also reduced the glare on the water.
You can make a Aleut visor out of a piece of large file folder, crayons or paints, and staples or tape.
