    That depends on how wide your spreader is & how flat it makes your roach. (If I understand your question)

      Howdy Eutrinka... Most (if not all) of the people in my community and the surrounding communities view the powwow reglaia as a sacred form of self-expression-no matter what style it is. Tradish's comments about the spreader determining how the roach stands/lays/sits are right on.

      Given that, I'm going to say how your roach lays is up to your own personal vision and tastes. I've seen them standing straight up in thr front as well as squashed all the wya flat (and everything inbetween) Good luck!

        Roaches

        Howdy

        I saw your post about roaches and different methods of wearing them. I have a preference to have the roach sit up with a slight overlay in front. You may have seen roaches that hang down low in front, that may be the way the roach is designed. If you look at the top of he roach, you will find that the bases (round part in front) are made narrow and others are made wide. Also some have long guard hair that naturally will hang down by its weight and the number of hairs in its individual bundles. Just a precaution on the roach spreader, remember that the porcupine hairs when dried out become brittle and any sharp object roach spreader will wear and cut the hairs. There many ways to express your pride and each on is special.

            how you want a roach to fan out is mostly personal preference or tradition but alot of it has to do with how the roach is shaped and as stated earlier the hair will get brittle with time if not taken care of so be careful of how much you have your spreader push on the hair i hope this pic shows up but this is one of my roaches without a spreader

              Roach attachment
              by Sonny Arm In Trout
              I have never worn a roach before. I am wanting to know how to attach the roach to the head. I know that it can be done using 2 scalp locks held with pins, but what about the German silver spreaders. Tell mw how this works? How is the feather attached to the spreader and how does the spreader stay...

              Question about smaller roaches
              by littleswan
              Hello powwow.com forums! I was wondering if any of you are familiar with smaller roaches. The size of the base on the roach I am going to be getting is going to be anywhere between six to eight inches long.

              That being said, does anyone know if I will have a problem with "spinning"...

              roach problem
              by mexicadancer1
              I have a small problem, I think I wrapped my roach around my roach stick wrong, because now all the hair on my roach is bent and messed up. Does anybody here know what I should do? Sombody told me that I should soak my roach then shape the hair before it dries. Do you think this would work?...
