Great Indian cards

Great Indian cards from the private swap with Cathy

Most all Native American Indian Peoples attach special significance to the Eagle and its feathers.
Eagle feathers were awarded to Indian Braves, warriors and Chieftains for extreme acts of valor and bravery. These feathers were difficult to come by, and were earned one at a time..

Both Bald and Golden Eagles (and their feathers) are highly revered and considered sacred within American Indian traditions, culture and religion
U.S. laws are very strict regarding the possession of eagle feathers. It is illegal to possess eagle feathers in any form unless you are an authorized American Indian. Possession of eagle feathers may lead to steep fines and prison.
The Buffalo nickel or Indian Head nickel was a copper-nickel five-cent piece struck by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938. It was designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser.
Models for this coin were Indians: Iron Tail, a Sioux, Big Tree, a Kiowa, and Two Moons, a Cheyenne, and Two Gun White Calf.
Sitting Bull  was a  Lakota Sioux holy man who led his people as a war chief during years of resistance to United States government policies. He was killed by Indian agency police on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him in 1890
