A symbol for power and prestige among many nations of the world, the eagle is also important to the First Nations of the Northwest Coast, who share the environment with this majestic bird.

Many myths and legends surround the eagle. They often play the role of messenger to and from the spiritual realms. Eagle down, a symbol of peace and friendship is sprinkled before guests in welcome dances and on other ceremonial occasions. Eagle feathers were used in rituals and worn on masks and headdresses. Eagle is one of the main two Haida crests and many families of the coast still own or inherit the right to dance and display the image of this mighty creature.
