NWTF Feather Distribution Project
Everyone who submits feathers will be entered into a drawing for a $250 NWTF prize pack.
The NWTF collects turkey feathers and gives them to Native American tribes across the nation for their religious ceremonies.
Please donate your feathers according to these guidelines:
- Make sure the feathers have been plucked, are cleaned of flesh and blood and are in relatively good condition. Please don't send bloody feathers.
- If possible, please separate the longer wing and tail feathers.
- Package feathers in a paper sack so air can reach them and put them in a box. Please don't pack in plastic.
Mail feathers to:
