interesting topic Rich, I've often wondered how the whole feather thing goes. I been taguht one way and learned another. First, I was taught that you had to earn each feather you were given-which, I can see would be fitting, paying honor to the person who earned it and respect to ther bird who gave it. One problem with this idea however, if you have to earn each feather for a great deed performed than by the looks of some of the bustles around, there are some saints among us Also , I've seen children with full eagle bustles-now I know @#$% well, they haven't been on the planet long enough to do all those good things!! Anyway, I've seen people trade for feathers and its realy on a case by case bases and who you want to trade with. As for gifting feathers to the Whiteboy (namely me), even if I saved every child out of a burning orphanage, a DNR goon with an attitude could through me in the slammer! We can't have them unless a) Your a Falconer, or b) bring them from overseas into the U.S. with the proper paper work. Tell me what ya'll think!!

So you don't think any child has earned an eagle bustle huh? How insulting!!!! How do you know what that child has done or better yet gone through in their life? You don't!! I've seen little kids Sun Dance. Do they deserve to wear an eagle bustle? You're darn right they do! I'm not going to name names, but there was a young boy from Eagle Butte who lost both parents in an accident and the community presented him with an Eagle bustle for all that he had gone through. Feathers are earned for good deeds so to speak, but they also tend to come to you when you need them the most. So before you go around judging/condemning children or anyone else for that matter who has eagle feathers, maybe you should talk to them first and not act out of petty jealousy. That's all I have to say.
