I would like to make an authentic Native Amercian wing fan, preferably Lakota Sioux or Cheyenne. Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
First, only native people can have the feathers to make such a fan. They are sacred objects. We use eagle feathers, or the wings of eagles. I can't speak for the lakota people, but traditionally, my people, the tsis-tsis-tas,(southern cheyenne)only used them in ceremony. No disrespect to you, but you could make a replica from goose feathers painted to resemble eagle feathers.
