i saw a guy over the weekend wearing eagle feathers on his baseball cap. Im afraid it just looked goofy. Though it went well with his black knee high fringed mocassins haha.. but i mean, a ballcap?? A dirty ballcap. I could see putting one in the band of your cowboy hat or any kind of brimmed hat.. But not a ballcap.

True that.

But, "goofy" looking or not (can't say I wear a feather to look hip or cool, so I don't worry about it too much), I nevertheless avoid putting feathers of any kind on a ballcap. The fabric ballcaps are made of is abrasive, and it won't take long for it to wear all the barbs off the base of a feather. One windy day will do it.

I'd just feel strange wearing a feather outside of a powwow/ceremony/etc. Whether you intend it to or not its probably gonna draw attention, and that's the last thing I go looking for being painfully shy as it is LOL plus people are nosy and would wanna poke it and me and touch it and that's not only annoying but disrespectful, depending.

I have seen some singers and ADs put a feather on a cap- usually a little fluff.

Generally this accompanies male pattern baldness, or the after effects of passing out around a particularly angry girlfriend/wife.

Anyways eagle feather on the cap means you don't have to take it off during grand entry, prayer, or honoring.

Saw a guy in the city a few days ago with 3 huge turkey feathers stuck to his construction helmet somehow... funniest thing I ever saw. And he was whiter than me, which is hard to accomplish LOL

A vast majority of feathers fall under the migratory bird act. Does anyone know if pigeon feathers fall under this act?

I have no clue.

As to the gist of the thread, I've always believed that -- if the feather is rightfully theirs -- it is not my place to question how they wear, display or use it.

If a dirty ballcap is their thing? "Fine."

It doesn't have to be mine...
