Help! Southern Californians, Look Out for This Lost Regalia

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown August 31st, 2015 Last Updated on: August 31st, 2015


Pow Wow Dancer Chuck Cadotte accidentally left his pow wow regalia on top of his car and drove away before he noticed it wasn't in the car. According to East County Magazine he was on his way out of San Diego when “a box containing the regalia festooned with many eagle feathers fell off the roof of his vehicle somewhere along his pre-dawn route this morning, which stared at Balboa Avenue onto 805 north, then I-5 north and the 405 freeway before the Castaic Lake exit, where he discovered the treasured items were missing.”



Items missing include: bustle feathers, roach and feathers, trailer with feathers, breastplate, head band, arm bands, eaglehead dance staff, shield with painted eagle head, and eagle feathers hanging as well as a gourd rattle and a roach stick with two eagle feathers. Cadotte’s name tag is on a vest. The box may have been destroyed, so please also report any loose items matching these descriptions if you find them.

Please contact Chuck at 619-929-2875 if you find anything! Best of luck and we'll be praying for their speedy return.
