Smudge Feather by Soaring Eagle – 29800


This beautiful smudge feather was crafted by Tyendinaga artist Soaring Eagle. In native culture, the giving of an eagle feather is very sacred. The eagle is a fierce protector and represents the link between the creator and the people. The wedding feather is crafted with this tradition in mind (but turkey feathers are substituted for eagle feathers). Two feathers represent the joining of two souls, white leather represents purity and sweetgrass is offered as a blessing to the union. The feathers measure 15″ long (37.5 cm) plus fringe.
