    What kind of fan do you use if you use one, tail, wing, or other?? I prefer using a tail fan, and I see lots of other jinglers using tail fans, and others using the wing fans. Which do you prefer and/or use?

    I USE TAIL AS WELL. TO ME IT JUST LOOKS NICER. EVEN AND STRAIGHT NOT ALL JAGGED LOOKING. WITHT THE PLUME FEATHERS ON THE UNDER SIDE TO SOFTEN IT.

                              I have both a tail fan and a wing fan. I started out using a wing fan when I was younger. After I got older, I switched to using a tail fan.

                                What do you think of wing fans? I've seen them being carried by a variety of dancers, including straight dancers. What types of fans do you all use? I prefer a loose fan with eagle feathers...

                                A friend sent me several wild turkey tail feathers, only 4 though.

                                They would make a nice flat fan but with only 4 I am not sure how to design it, what kind of dancer would use it?

                                Traditionally speaking, is a wing fan used for this dance, a flat fan for that? Are certain...

                                During the many Gourd dances that I've been to I have noticed many different types of fans used.

                                What type of fan(s) do you use?

                                I have a loose feather (Eagle Feather) fan and a wing fan(Eagle). Occassionally, I will use one of my Eagle flat fans. The occassions are different...
