Feathers were a rare and valued commodity imported from the Amazonian basin into the Pacific coastal regions. The journey in those times to collect the bundles from the forest tribes was not only arduous but also perilous. Such feathers being a great luxury were only worn by the dignitaries, priests, and warlords as symbols of status and power.
