    Did you show them your papers ? How do you know they were thrown away ?


    I've never been questioned but I always keep a copy of my CDIB and feather permit with the feathers , another in each vehicle , and 1 in my wallet.IF anyone ever questions it and I produce these documents proving the legality, and they try to take them , there would be a huge fight.
    I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


    They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

    There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

    Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
    It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

        Wow, I did not realize that Eagle feathers and Hawk feathers were very important as opposed to having them used sacred feathers for Powwows and special ceremonies.

        I could not imagine how you went through with the police arrest and handcuff and not bring the feathers to you if you had show the papers to them. I am so sorry this happen to you. This is new to me. We never had that problem. My family member (my nephew) used other kind of feathers that were not Eagle and/or Hawk feathers to make prayer shields with fake Eagle feathers. He gave me one (the shield).

        If my nephew had found real Eagle feathers on the grounds but need to have papers to prove this is the real Eagle Feathers. So far he had not found one or more of Eagle feathers. So that is rare. Yes, it is illegal to have real Eagle feathers. I don't know about real Hawk feathers. Very scary when you found that you are being arrested by the police officers. **sad**

            So , give us the rest of the story......what "mis-understanding" put you in a position to be handcuffed and what gave the arresting officers cause to not listen to you?
            I've always been taught that if you don't care for your feathers as you should , then your feathers will leave you.I'm proud to say I've never lost a feather !

                  Wasn't trying to accuse. Now you've given the rest of the story though.
                  Contact the arresting officer and explain to him the situation. If that doesn't get you anywhere , go to his supervisor.(have your paperwork/permits) Sorry to say but if that doesn't work then you are probably out of luck.

                      Sorry to hear this. I made an alter of feathers in the woods along side of a stream hanging in a tree many years ago. All were found from different places. At the time I didn't consider anyone ever finding them, but whenever I think of them, it brings joy to my spirit. I still wonder what it would be like to find something like that.

                        by CHEROSAGE
                        I have just recently returned from a dance in south Texas. I was asked to help out as their AD this year. I was very glad to help out in any way I could. I would do it again if asked.

                        The issue I want to address is this. On Sat. evening I had a duty to tell everyone with Eagle feathers...

                        by Moosa09
                        Hey, I'm a fancy shawl dancer who has been dancing for about 5 years. I don't dance with feathers, not by choice. People have told me to buy feathers from a store or to get them from a wild life preservation. I strongly believe that people should wear feathers that are A: given to them or B: have earned...

                        by cherokeemom06
                        Not sure if this would be the right place to post this or not but I can't think of where else to put it. One of my friends was given a feather that he was told was eagle. However it is black with a white tip instead of white with black tip. Has anyone ever heard of an eagle that would have feathers...

                        Has anybody ever had a problem with painted imitation eagle feathers where a sticky residue has accumulated over them? I have these three feathers and I've kept them in a cedar box to protect them and I opened up the box for the first time in about six months and this sticky stuff was all over the feathers....

                        I'm constructing a new bustle and I'm having a really hard time finding any good feathers for it. I havent earned the right to use Eagle or hawk feathers, and all the turkey feathers I can find are only the common barred ones. Does anyone know of anywhere that I can find some good alternatives to the...
