My daughter and I use both. Since I make all our outfits myself; I usually just look at the feathers that come to me by luck or gift, and decide what those feathers or bird parts, etc. wants to be made into. We don't have alot of good feathers, but what we do have looks very nice, and is treated with great respect.

I love tail feather fans. I am waiting on an eagle so I can get a full tail feather fan made. They are so gorgeous.

Talking Tail...but wings are beautiful too.

My father n law gifted me and his granddaughter (my daughter) with small tail fan.
My daughters has three feathers though and the base is Mule Deer Antlers with beautiful peyote stitch beadwork. Mine has four tail feathers with stained redwood base with a lil' bit of fringe coming off of it. we use those. We are waiting for feathers as well and once we get some more I will make bigger fans for us. Sometimes yah got use what you got, no matter how many-big or small...
toksa!

I like the tail fan i think they are very pretty...however I have used a wing fan since I graduated . I was gifted one for my high school gad. that was passed down to me from my grandfather. so out of respect for him...I use the fan. also I have heard a story floating about that once wing fans were used for the healing dance. True? ny know?

I dunno if it's true or not but I have seen alot of Ojibwe jingle dancers with a tail fan more often than a wing. I personally have 2 small tails and a medium wing and I prefer to used one of the tails more often, just because.

Hmm.I prefer the tail fans..but more recently only used macaw fans for the apst 3 years...i have 2 of them..and i also have a white tail and an eagle tail..they are all done up...but when i was smaller like in junior's..i remember using a wing fan..those were the days..

But i would say tail..nice and flat..with great featherwork!
