    Chaz,
    I understand the feathers where awarded for acts of bravery of other special "virtues" and the assortment of feathers told you about the person wearing them.

    Please tell us more.

    Inpolar...

    If I didn't know those photos were from Russia, I'd have sworn they were taken in Alaska.

    We have many native peoples here, but none that live a truly native lifestyle. There are communities that are close to "original," but for many years the natives were not allowed to practice their native ways, and so many traditions were lost. It is a very sad thing, in my opinion.

    Andrea

    Cool stuff.

    Speaking of native gear...
    Here is an interesting geo-cache if you want to find 13,842 Leki Poles.

    Latitude 49.7667 Longitude 20.6000 Altitude (feet) 1026

    Lat (DMS) 49 46' 0N Long (DMS) 20 36' 0E Altitude (meters) 312
