The White Feather


Ruth Eitzen – The white feather is a sign of friendship. If an Indian man gave you one and you had it on your door, they would know you were their friend. In the early days, about 1812, a Quaker family came to Cincinnati, Ohio. They were friendly people and the only weapons they had were fairness and confidence. The Indians came and demanded guns from the Quaker family. When they found none the mother made cookies for them. By turning the other cheek they were able to make friends.
