Clan Blue Feather is a large household in the SCA (note for newbies: a 
household is an unofficial grouping of friends/like-minded folks). The 
head of the household (last I heard, several years ago) is Tristan 
Alexander, who resides in Bright Hills (Baltimore, MD area). I've never 
had the pleasure of meeting this fine gentle, but his excellent artwork has 
graced many an Acorn.

I've heard that blue feathers have become less a sign of clan membership 
and more a symbol of pride acceptable in the SCA milleu, a la a pink 
triangle or rainbow flag. I'm not sure if this is true across the Knowne
World, though.
