100% sourced in Canada
Turtle Lodge Trading Post's feathers are sourced from farmers and hunters in CANADA only. We go that extra mile to ensure that our feathers come from folks who treat the birds with as much kindness and respect as possible, unlike the horrible conditions suffered by many of those sourced from other countries. Our feathers have also been untouched by any toxic chemicals, as is often the case with feathers coming in from out of the country. Our feathers are treated with great respect, offered Semah (Tobacco) much gratitude, and are smudged and gently cleaned with a mild natural soap and Cedar water, then are stored with some ground White Sage to keep them protected in all ways.
Feathers have great meaning for Indigenous People around the world. They are symbols of learning, strength, honour, wisdom, freedom, community and protection. Each part of a feather has deeper, layered meanings. In ceremony, feathers help us to connect with the elements of Air and Spirit. We use them to apply the sacred smoke from our medicines, and to brush away negative energies. We wear them in our hair and on our regalia to honour the medicine of these tools and to protect us on our path.
Our Feathers come in two grades, A and B. A grade feathers will have little to no flaws, while B grade feathers will have a few flaws (i.e. small nicks or slight thinning of the tips, etc)
