I believe rattlesnake headband, horn buckle, and walking stick, 1974 I was student in Psych. Tech. program at Sonoma and Napa State Hosp., A female student good friend of mine wanted to help men in prison, she joined a group of women headed by Squeaky Fromm and they went to Folsom Prison to visit and then they wrote to inmates, She met Chuy, and when he was released he came and lived with her, we all had little cabins on the creek in Glen Ellen Ca. He was scary, dangerous, but talented in some areas, Crafts and drugs, and hurting humans. They lived next door, I never knew his last name, he died of overdose, after being saved one time by us neighbors. He made the stick in prison. All I will say is he learned some Indian crafts from his older relatives when he was young. Funny also when Squeaky Fromm tried to kill President Ford the FBI came into our classrom and took my friend for questioning, but she did nothing wrong and was back in school the next day.

    Chuy once told me there was magic and power in feathers, I asked where do you get magic feathers? He looked at me like I was crazy, and said FROM BIRDS!
