Flat Fans of the Plains Region

A contemporary fan made by Native Americans of the plains consists of five to seven feathers which are individually dicorated and set into a wooden handle. The wing or tail feathers are decorated with small trim or feathers, cloth or leather spots, and hackle feathers. The quills of the large feathers are wrapped with white buckskin, wrapped with thread and often adorned with metal bands. The handle is wrapped with leather and enbellished with beaded applique or with peyote stitch beadwork. Peyote fans, or those associated with the religious rites of the Native American Church, are very serious and should not be copied, displayed, or treated disrespectfully.
