Birds Thunderbirds & Eagles

The eagle is thought to be the master of the sky and a carrier of prayers sent to the Great Spirit and possessor of courage and wisdom.. This bird is a "directional protector" associated with the sky spirits and visions.

Feathers of geese adorn arrows to represent the long flights of geese during seasonal migrations. Eagle feathers are connected with honor or closeness to the Creator.
