Dear Dr. Travnicek,

As a member of TRIBE NAME OR concerned citizen who believes in religious freedom for Native Americans, I support this proposal to provide lasting protection for the religious use of federally protected eagle feathers. The Department is required by the Constitution and by federal law to respect religious exercise. The proposed change would ensure that the federal government respects the unique role that feathers play in Native American faiths.

The petition will be open for comments until July 16, 2019. The federal rulemaking process is designed to allow hands-on engagement from the people who are or will be affected by agency policy. It is important for the Department to hear support directly from the federally and state recognized Native American communities who will benefit from this change.
