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.

Queretaro - Mexico.....Full plumage headrest -- Did you know: the Inca required these fancy tail feathers as a tribute? they would collect the feathers off the ground, where they fell after mating season was over. Unfortunately, the Spaniards killed the birds to get the feathers. :-(
