    I have a mature golden eagle feather fan...it only has four feathers in it but the feathers are quite large. I am expecting my immature feathers anytime now so I can make a really nice larger fan and then the mature one will be beaded and passed down to my daughter as she gets older and does more dancing.
    Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

      :Cooler now that's another thing I think is so cool about all this, also when we have children of our own we can pass to them our stuff, if their interested. It's taken a few years but my youngest son is now goiong back to grass dancing. Only thing is though his dad was fancy dancer, and I don't think he wants any of my dresses, so I can't pass to much down to him.

        I carry a mature golden eagle fan...It's got 7 feathers in it, the handle's beaded and there is some pretty nice feather work on it too. I use an all red macaw fan every now and then too. Then I am supposed to be getting a red and blue macaw fan too, but the feathers are still in the package!!! but someday.......:)

          I carry a bald eagle tail fan - all white feathers, and it is made of all 12 of them. With a beaded handle, and florette featherwork up the feather stems.

              My fan was given to me. There was a lady from Cherokee, NC who came and taught a class at the Carolina Indian Seminar. I was one of her students in that class. That night, just before the pow wow she handed me a gift bundle. It was a fan. I cried, this was the first time anyone outside of my closest friends and family had ever given me anything. I will always treasure that fan. :Angel2

                Fan question
                by paintedsun22
                I have a eagle feather fan for my jingle dress. I was told I could also use a macaw feather fan but not a turkey feather fan. So I have a question. It seems to me like it would be more traditional to use turkey feathers than macaw feathers. So why can you use macaw feathers and not turkey feathers?

                question about fans
                by geekgal
                Hi all,

                I am interested in making a fan to go with my outfit. I was wondering about the general way that you go about doing it - what you use for a handle, if you bead first then put the feathers into the handle (i've seen some wooden handles where you can do that), etc.

                by yobe
                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. The fan is made with immature golden tail feathers (black tips & speckled underneath). There is no beadwork on the handle but sewn with white leather and several...

                Eagle fan construction
                by native_designs
                I'm needing a few suggestions. I am working on a flat fan for my step dad (Cheyenne/Arapaho). I have only collected 4 eagle tail feathers.

                Is it ever okay to make a flat fan with an even number of feathers?

                Can you use other feathers in addition to the eagle...
