The Power of Feathers
For Native Americans, feathers symbolize much more than just a part of a bird; they stand for trust, honor, strength, and freedom. Many Native American tribes believe that birds have a special connection with heaven, since they fly so close to the sun, and consider it a great gift when they receive feathers. Golden or Bald Eagle feathers are especially revered, as they fly the highest of all other birds.
