Illiniwek regalia

There are many issues to this story.

Follow the money-did the university inventory the items that were purchased? What items are currently in the possession of the mascot? What is the chain of command for the previous mascots? Are there pictures of the original regalia?

Claims to the items-is there only one remaining descendent of Fools Crow? In the white mans world if items are sold for a value they are then sold back at todays price. In essence money talks.

Sacred eagle feathers-eagle feathers are protected by federal laws and are binding. There are processes in place to address this issue of selling eagle feathers.

This will be a continual story.

My 2 cents
