    Indian Barbie at Powwow! High-heeled moccasins! It'll sell! But probably not to Indian kids.

      You are correct! It will never sell to ndn kids. They are a little too smart for that one! LOL!

      On the other hand there was once an NDN Barbie that I did date for a while in high school. Ah.... the good old days!
      Don't ask me what I think about something unless you want a truthful anwser. It may not be the anwser you are looking for.

      It's better to fly with the eagles then drive with the turkeys.

        Did she wear high heeled moccasins? Sorry, just the thought of those has my imagination running wild. Fully beaded spike heals.....

          With her figure and her taste in clothing, she could have gotten away with fully beaded heals back in the late 60s early 70s. The last time I saw Barb was at my 30yr high school reunion. She still looks yummy!

            Isn't it...

            Absolutely ridiculous when a dancer adorns himself with more feathers then the bird? Some bustles i've seen are pathetic.....Hey 2 each their own....I prefer older styles....Oh and it's not just eagles being poached....It boils down to the individual though....How can you "blame" or accuse the Dance? I suppose next we'll hear a number of other doings are contributing to the demise of something....Folks should be careful on both sides of the fence....Who ya gonna trust?

              Yote,

              You made some good points.

              I have been sitting on this one (article) for a while.

              In looking at the other side of the fence...

              "America did not have eagle conservation problems before EuroAmerican westward expansion."



              Indian people the main eagle killers? Duh???? I don't think so. Putting the deaths of eagles today, into perspective....

              "Most eagles are killed from powerlines, poisons, netting, road kills and captivity in zoos."
              Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

                Nothing wrong with a good convo....

                But c'mon.....? I ignored this thread for sometime....out of "assuming" it was ridiculous....Ironically their will be people out there who fantasize it though....If Powwows or Skins are the greatest killers of Eagles...Well I suppose Wolves are responsible for the depletion of Caribou herds up North? In acuality the Wolf saves the herd by hunting or eliminating weak or diseased Caribou....Now I certainly don't condone poaching and yes it does exist, but as usual Who Me set it straight.....

                      Poaching Pizzas is illegal in most states !
                      I'm turnin' you in to the pizza repository !
                      The Italians are going to be very upset with you !
                      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 !

                              i think the article is a good wake-up

                              these feathers was never meant to be judged at compititions. ive seen young people draging bussels on the ground. these feathers were never meant to be bought or sold. just like the guy in article the 1/8 cherokee. he proberly knows nothing of the feathers in creators teachings. i agree pow-wows are killing birds

Im sure everyone knows someone who always has some stuff. Next time, ask where they came from. Not that they are gonna say they shot the bird, but if everyone starts questioning them and not buying, maybe they will stop.

                                its more honorable to dance with your own feathers than to buy them just to look good.

                                but Im a white guy with painted feather, so what do I know.
                                some painted feathers look cool. but they cant obtain the medicine you have in a wambli feather.. like playing on a cow hide drum compared to one with a buffallo. no medicine.

                                  Eagles and eagle feathers have been a hot topic in the news across the continent lately. Sadly, the news has been as much bad as good. While eagle populations are slowly recovering, not all is going well for this majestic bird.

                                  hi. good topic. this made me think of something. how do people feel about gifting non- natives with eagle feathers? or even, what are the laws along those lines?

                                  As I continue to travel more and more, I find people (especially younger people) "ASKING" for Eagle feathers or things with them (i.e. fans).

                                  As a young person, I marveled over those who had full bustles and large fans. Primarily because they were so few and far between. Now...

                                  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...
