Oggetto: The Eagle Song Mar Gen 31, 2012 5:56 pm
Both Bald and Golden Eagles (and their feathers) are highly revered and considered sacred within Native American traditions, culture and religion. They are honored with great care and shown the deepest respect. They represent honesty, truth, majesty, strength, courage, wisdom, power and freedom. As they roam the sky, they are believed to have a special connection to the Creator. According to traditional Native American believes, the Creator made all the birds of the sky when the World was new. Of all the birds, the Creator chose the Eagle to be the leader... the Master of the Sky. The Eagle spends more time in the higher element of Father Sky than other birds, and Father Sky is an element of the Spirit. The Eagle is considered to be a messenger to the Creator. It was given the honor of carrying the prayers of man between the World of Earth and the World of Spirit, where the Creator and grandfathers reside. To wear or hold an Eagle feather causes the Creator to take immediate notice. With the Eagle feather, the Creator is honored in the highest way. Eagle feathers were awarded to Native American Braves, warriors and Chieftains for extreme acts of valor and bravery. These feathers were difficult to come by, and were earned one at a time. Regardless of where or how a Brave accumulated Eagle feathers, he was not allowed, according to Tribal Law, to wear them until he won them by a brave deed. Many of the old Native American Chiefs had won enough honors to wear a double-trailed bonnet that dragged the ground. Only the great and important men of the Tribes had the right to wear the double-trailed War Bonnets. The Native American holds the Eagle in the highest regard, and has a true "heart and soul desire" to keep it flying healthy and free for many generations to come.
