I love Red Feather's
thick body and wide V-shaped tail. His face profile reminds
me of an elderly Indian man I used to see in town now and then.
He was from the Blackfoot Tribe and always had a red feather
in his hat. One day while my mother shopped for groceries I
stayed outside to play in front of the store. This man was there
loading kids and groceries in his pick-up truck. I asked him
if he was a Blackfoot Indian.
The man responded with "yes"
and I proceeded to ask why he then didn't wear a black feather
in his hat rather than a red one. He laughed and said the color
of his feather was of no importance, it's how he chose to wear
it. "It's like choosing to be a good person. Your feathers
or color of them has nothing to do with what you choose to have
in here" he said as he placed his hand over his heart.
Red feather has ruddy reddish brown coloring and feathers. Much
like the color of the elderly man's sunburned face.
