Description

Bone roached spread, shoulder blade. Eagle feather, with two small pink feathers attached; one at the tip and one at the center is attached to a small round tube of metal brass. This is tied to the bone by a small piece of rawhide tied through four holes in the bone at the thinner end of the bone which is shaped like a shoe horn. At the wider end are four small holes arranged in a square. A larger hole is located beneath this square formation. The bone is very flat.
