Feather Bundles

Pass The Feather wraps any feathers to create smudge fans and arranges feathers to make Indigenous art and ceremonial pieces. Pass The Feather does not sell Eagle feathers or feathers that are protected under the Migratory Bird Act.

For the cost of labour and materials such as leather and beads, we share our feathers with those who understand their importance and wish to use them to connect with Creator.
