          i wouldn't ever make a roach.

          Too much work. LOL.

          I bought mine from powwowbum49.
          I'm interested more in self determination than gender equity. In other words, changing white men for white woman in the structures of power, does nothing to transform the opression in my community.

              Connecting Feather to Spreader

              I recently completed my first roach and it's okay for a first attempt. I'm trying to figure out the best way to connect the feathers to my spreader. Any suggestions?

                  Connecting Feathers to Spreader

                  Thanks Historian,

                  But I'm still not clear on how to connect the feathers to the spreader. All of the instructions show how to make the roach and the spreader but they don't address how to connect them. Any suggestions?

                    what kind of spreader do you have? the one i have has over size tubes with a hole in the bottom on each which i thread a key chain glued into each of the shaft in my feathers and clip together on the bottom with the clip for the key chain this let them spend around hope this helps


                    • #11
                      Mine has a tube with a wire coming out of it- you gotta crimp the wire a little and feather slides right on.

                      I have also seen guys use swivels to clip the feather onto the spreader.

                        Thanks guys I think I understand how its done. Let me try of a couple of your suggestions and see how things work out.

                        Thanks again.

                          Well I need help...

                          I am a 5 foot 6 person and from the top of my head (were the base of the roach should be) to my shoulders is 15 inches...

                          I am wondering if I should go with a 15-inch roach or go with a longer roach? And if I am correct you wear the roach in...

                          roach headdress for grassdance
                          by Indianloving1
                          I have a son who is 10yrs old and is getting ready to start GrassDancing. My question is since his dad is white and not into native traditions who or where would I have the roach made? A friend is making the rest of his regalia other than the roach and the moccasins. I would apperciate any help.:Angel2...

                          by fawne00
                          I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips for making antennas with fluffs for my baby's roach (what and how to use, etc). He's only two and i don't wanna use feathers until he's older and learns the proper respect. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
