The significance of the Eagle in many First Nations stories is that Eagle is used to represent perception and spiritual connection. Eagle feathers and down are sacred: traditionally Shamans believed in their healing powers and used them in a variety of ceremonial and ritual contexts such as honouring a respected guest. Eagle's down symbolized good luck, peace, welcome and friendship.
