Cherokee Indian Feathers?

Answer

Feathers are a big part of the Cherokee tribe and the environment. Certain feathers were used doing tribal ceremonies and have been used for traditional rituals. Eagle feathers were significant to the Cherokee, especially the twelve tail feathers. The eagle feathers were used for decoration or during ceremonies. Owls were said to be witches or embodied ghosts. The feathers of the owl were not worn. One long wing or tail feather of the owl was used to soak in water and bathe a child's eye to keep them up all night. Blue jay feathers were soaked in water and used to bathe a child's eye to make them an early riser.
