Dr. Feathers projects include dating and assessing stratigraphic integrity at Paleo-Indian sites in North and South America. TL dating is the determination, by means of measuring radiation dose over time.

Procedures for Dr. Feathers TL analysis include:
"Know that the work we're doing now collectively may not be realized in our life time. It's a goal we're working towards, which will benefit people beyond any of our expectations or imaginations. As a peaceful people we can gather people to one sacred hoop and accomplish good," – Chris Comeswithclouds White.
