Native Americans May Possess Eagle Feathers

Speaking of political correctness (see my last post, Brandeis, What’s the Big Deal?), word just in that The Justice Department announced late last week that it would allow members of federally recognized Indian tribes to possess eagle feathers. However, don’t expect to see eagle feathers on e-Bay any time soon. According to The First Amendment Center, “the Justice Department will continue to prosecute tribe members and nonmembers alike for violating federal laws that prohibit killing eagles and other migratory birds or the buying or selling the feathers or other bird parts.”

So, don’t expect to see Rauschenberg’s Canyon on sale any time soon.
