Ceremonial Prayer Fans
Prayer fans are used in various ways.  One of the most common ways it is
used is for the smudging ceremony.  In the ceremony negative energy is
released through sage and cedar smoke, sweetgrass is used to bring in
positive energy.  The prayer fans are hand made from deer buckskin and
turkey feathers or plumes.  They are decorated with turquoise (for protection),
deer antler (unity), or abalone (to reflect bad medicine).  They also have
fringe and come in various styles.
