Eagle is a medicine bird throughout most cultures. The Bald Eagle is the symbol of the United States. The eagle is the most swift and mighty bird of prey, greatly respected for it‘s power and sheer grandeur in flight.

Eagle plays many roles from hero to messenger; one meaning of an Eagle’s visitation is to see far and wide, to gain the vision of an Eagle that can view the “big picture” with immaculate vision. Eagle’s eyes are the eyes of the divine spirit within each of us, and Eagle is identified with the sun, far-seeing, clarity, and a soaring spirit.

In the Zuni Tradition, the Eagle symbolizes the direction Up.
