Navajo Ceremonial Pow Wow Feather
This adornment is a feather used in various ceremonial functions. It's main purpose is for cleansing and health. During the ceremony, also called "Smudging", Cedar or Sage wood is lit and you would fan yourself with the Feather to take in the smoke's healing good luck powers. Different from our Chippewa Talking Feather in size, but the construction is basically the same.
