    Fan question

    I see alot of dancer's use painted Eagle and Painted Hawk. Is that allowed?
    How do you make a fan handle?

    I know it's a sad fact when native people are not "allowed" by their governing countries to use the traditional feathers of their culture, for fear and prosicution!

    Here in Canada, it is legal to aquire and posses eagle feathers, but in the US, I have hear it's a big no-no, and that is sad!:Yell

      I have an eagle feather fan which I recived from my father in Canada..I even brought it back from Canada when I moved here to the states. From what I understand you can get a permit to transport eagle feathers although I dont have one lol but my father does.

        Feathers (Eagle)

        As far as I know you can have Eagle feathers here in the USA as long as you are Native. If you are non-Native then you have to have a permit. Thats just what i've been told growing up by my elders. :Thinking I did hear something about Feathers this last weekend but i'm afraid that i didn't catch the whole story. So i won't go into that. Okay. :Thumbs
        Take care all. See you in the funny papers. :) Or maybe even the next powwow.

          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.

          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...

          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?

          My wife is native American 3/8 Cherokee but I am the beadwork fanatic. I do peyote stitch on some round items. An I have made a wood fan handle that not knowing what I was doing beaded in Comanche stitch until I needed to add beads on the taper and then was lost. So I Finished it in bead wrap. Now...
