    The Return of Sacred Miigwans

    Recently a young man (a tribal descendent) was sentenced in District Court in Grand Rapids for charges related to the selling of the feathers of Migizi (the bald eagle). Specifically, selling feathers from bald eagles, “knowing that the wildlife had been taken, possessed and transported in violation of the laws of the United States,” as stated by Assistant U.S. Attorney Phillip Green in the indictment. The young man pled guilty and was sentenced by the court on the charges.
