  • Feather Fan Found Along Oklahoma Highway

    I found this post on another website and thought I would post it here also:



    2 Days, 18 Hours ago
    Reposted....

    Greetings,

    Our Region 2 Migratory Bird Permit Office, here in Albuquerque, was transferred a feather fan that was found along side a highway within Oklahoma. I do not have a lot of details as to the exact location, who found it, etc., but I am awaiting more information that I will forward on.

    For the time being I am in possession of this feather fan and will keep it locked up, until hopefully the rightful owner can be located. Why it was found along side a highway, I have no idea, however I wanted to get this message out to as many people as possible, being that someone may have also been passing through the State of OK and somehow lost this fan.

    In an effort to find the rightful owner I am not yet going to provide a photo, nor a description, let alone the type of feathers that were used to make this fan. All I will say though is that it was found inside a multicolored protective case and the fan has a unique hand-made handle, with is wrapped in a multicolored cover.

    If someone can identify, in detail, the type of feathers used, the case color, and overall description of the fan (ex. the handle), I will work with them in an effort to return the fan. For more information, please contact me directly.

    Otherwise, please forward this e-mail on to anyone it might concern.

    Thank you,

              I have to say this is surprisingly nice for USFWS.

              If it is your fan you are gonna have to have your permit to get it back though.

                You know that is what I thought and of course if you have papers they would give it back

                I just thought I would post it here, for I found it on Powwow Time website

                  Glad people repost this kinda stuff though, I have heard of many instances in which people lost stuff and got it back because of bulletins online. Wasn't that the case last year when some stuff got stolen, and emails went around and some museum people found em and returned em?



                  we found a jingle dress and a grass dance set zipped up in hanger bag draped over a fence the day after our past memorial day powwow in cass lake, and I made a few myspace posts...and a few days later the original owners got em back. As it turns out they were stolen a few months before, and the people who stole them musta left them at this powwow.

                      well they do DNA test all birds that come through their system don't they? and theoretically they should be able to tell who's fan it is ... right?

                      unless of course they don't DNA track who gets what feathers ... but they know it came from a "legal" bird ...

                      and it could be from an "illegal" one and they are just doing an elaborate sting operation ... LOL

                          Greetings everyone...I am in need of your help. I lost my fan at Traders Village Powwow at Grand Prarie, Texas in September of this year.

                          In the late 1800s, Ponca, Omaha, and Osage, as well as straight dancers from other Southern Plains tribes, could be seen in old photos, (see examples below) carrying a feather fan made from the complete tail of a golden eagle, with the tanned body-skin and feathers, and the head, hanging below the tail....

                          I figured this type of thread belongs here rather in jingle area...maybe someone here can help this person out?(See message below)

                          Also in this thread can someone make tutorials on how to make: flat fan, wing fan, drop fan,tail fan etc...? this would be a big help to those who use fans...
