Question Question About Dance Fan

I have a question about dance fans and would appreciate any feed back.
OK I made a fan and I used "found" wild turkey feathers on my dad's property, and a few peacock feather's from a friends farm.
now here is the thing instead of the regular wood handle I used a Turtle shell.
I am wondering if this is acceptable to use at powwow or should I keep it for deco. and make a more Traditional one.
The feathers in this one mean alot to me because me the hubby and kids found them on a walk on dads land. I know wild turkey feathers are acceptable i'm just concerned about the handle (the idea behind the turtle shell was to represent Turtle island.....)

K. thats the question.....anyone? anyone?.......

i say bring it and show it off 1st ask the head mc if any objection would be given if u could use it but i say if it is special to u and has relation to your tribe go for it,... it really couldnt be a major insult unless some one told u it was their totem or summin i would like to see a pic of the fan. (but that is just me)
