Wild Turkey feathers are traditionally used in smudging and cleansing ceremonies to guide the smoke from a burning plant (sage, sweetgrass, cedar) over a person and/or space, and in the direction of the prayers sent to the Creator.
Feathers hold a sacred meaning in that they are symbols to help one soar. The turkey is known as a totem to assist one in remembering to honour and remember Mother Earth, and to be in harmony with all. The turkey helps us to connect with the fullness and blessing of Life itself.
Each feather varies in pattern and is around 25-30cm in length.
