From eBay:

This is a beautiful ornate native american prayer fan made with seven long feathers with intricate artwork and wonderful beaded handle. The fan is about 27″ long if you include the bottom fringes on the handle. There are six black and white tail feathers and one center blue Macaw feather that is yellow on the reverse side. The colorful feather art and beadwork is amazing on this piece. This is the real deal! A wonderful handmade vintage native american ceremonial prayer fan.

These types of fans are most commonly used in dances and pow wows and also quite often used in ceremonial peyote gatherings. Used for their protection and journeys through life, ceremonial fans are used as intermediaries between the spirit people and the human race. These ceremonial fans are also know to have healing powers and purpose of accomplishments.
