Question Trading for Feathers and other regalia items?

I have noticed that there has been alot of discussion about feathers and Trades for feathers and other regalia items, and It made me think.. Hmmm?? Wonder if that would make a good topic??

I personaly think Trading is great.. as long as both sides get somthing that is equal value to the persons invalved.. Its the old way of doing things in my view, so I prefer it to buying anything. I know in the matter of feathers there are legal issues around the topic of Trading for them, but Its my Understanding acording to the fish n' game guys that we Natives can gift eachother these feathers for dancing or ceremonies, but I dont think payin cash is good at all! I try to give away feathers, Cloth, Hides and beadwork I cant use.. or I feel needs to be gifted out to a new owner.These items are suposed to be used and appreciated.
I just thought it might trigger a good discussion or give folks a chance to vent and inform! LOL!
Take care
