Please join us for a presentation by Dr. Jonathan Reyman, Curator of Anthropology at the Illinois State Museum, about WingWise, a feather distribution project. Wingwise provides wild turkey, macaw, and parrot feathers to the Pueblo Indians of the American Southwest for traditional religious ceremonies to help them maintain their 1st Amendment rights under the Constitution. The project aims to eliminate the smuggling of endangered and threatened species of macaws and parrots, and, in turn, to reduce the destruction of native bird populations and their habitats in Latin America.
