Feathers are commonly given as a gift to heal the heart. The feathers send prayers to the heavens and draw healing power from the sky. These fans may also be used for smudging or to compliment a dance costume. In a rustic decor the fans can be beautifully displayed in frames or as wall hangings.

The barred turkey feathers are painted with animals and birds sacred to the Native Americans. The handle is beaded in the Peyote design and decorated with leather fringe, fur and/or animal fetishes.  Each is unique.

These fans are a collaborative effort between two cousins — Dorothy Ance Webb and Valdora Phillippe Ward. Dorothy is of Laguna Pueblo, Winnebago and Chippewa-Ottawa heritage. She beaded and decorated the handles.  Valdora painted the feathers. She is an artist, well known for her murals, paintings on fabric and detailed wood burning or fire painting.
