The Eagle is a spiritual messenger for the people as he brings our prayers up to the Creator. They are an inspiration for our people and are appreciated for their ability to see the big picture on the horizon as well as focus on small details. Eagle feathers are given as gifts to symbolize honour and respect for accomplishments and displays of courage and wisdom. Because Eagles mate for life, they are also admired for their long term spousal commitments.
The Eagle and can be identified in Pacific Northwest Coast First Nation art by a powerful beak whose upper half ends in a strong downward curve, piercing eyes, feathers and large talons.
