  • Fans?

    What kind of fan do most of you dance with? Around here I see mostly eagle tail flat fans. Just wondering if that is what everyone uses.

    I'm using a goose wing, but would eventually like to make a flat fan.

            :) I'm using a flat fan with red-tail hawk feathers, but I'm working on a flat fan with cooper hawk feathers.

              I saw someone once use a drop fan made of macaw tail feathers. Is that appropriate to use? Or should you use eagle or hawk?

                I have a flat fan, a wing fan and one thats kind of both. That last one is made like a flat fan but has wing spike feathers. I'd love to have an eagle tail fan but can't legally own one so I make my fans from Canada goose, white turkey or Spanish turkey feathers instead.

                As for a jingle dancer carrying a drop fan, I've never seen anyone do it. Jingle dancing is a Northern style so a Southern drop fan would look out of place.

                  macaw feathers

                  I saw someone with a drop fan of macaw feathers...I bet it was the same person. Personally, and it's just my opinion, it did look kind of odd.

                    OH, I should also mention, her regalia was very beautiful...but it wasn't the norm either (I'm not saying it's wrong, I've just never seen any like it). I think I have a picture of her, if I can find it I'll post it.

                      :Thinking What's a drop fan? :Thinking

                      Never heard of the term. I may have seen them and just didn't know what they were called.

                        A drop fan is kind of like a loose fan. The feathers just flop out in all directions unless you hold them together.

                              I thought those drop fans were used in the Native American Church - didn't know they were used at powwows.

                                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...

                                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...

                                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?

                                Turkey feather fan
                                by NotSoLarj
                                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...
