Feathers mean a lot to Native American Tribes. A feather isn’t just something that falls out of a bird, it means much more. The feather symbolizes trust, honor, strength, wisdom, power, freedom and many more things.

    Wisdom, Honor, Trust, Strength, Power....is the Native bling in a feather. Thankyou Ruth Enid Gonzalez

    you've enlightened me being a native polynesian maori of the Pacific. These tribal symbols mean equally the same to us in upholding similar values. Worlds apart with great warrior values

This is just like Mardi Gras...and it's spiritual! I love this! Native American dancer

  • Kayla Jones-Grubbs

    Mardi gras? I think not. If you've ever seen this in person- and I have, almost every summer I remember growing up- it would be clear to you that our traditions in no way emulate or resemble mardi gras. Perhaps ask your educators for a refund?

    I agree with Kayla Jones....but I also feel that the native people need to hold on strong to their culture....it is very precious and can be easily lost.

    I have been to several Pow-wows and feel how the Native Americans connect with Mother Earth. The way they Honor the ones who have passed away. I have an album on pinterest for Native Americans. I have a lot of respect for their traditions and way of living. Everyone can learn something from everyone. I have learned a lot from being in the presence of the Native Americans. Especially how to live as one with Nature.

  • Big Sis

    Respect and protect Nature, but live for the Creator and their people!!!!

  • Liz

    .... just as the Native Americans do, I agree ♥
