The feathers of the Bald and Golden Eagles
Migizi, the Bald Eagle, symbolizes courage and pre-knowledge and is therefore emblematic of leadership. The Anishinaabeg regard Migizi as a special messenger of GICHI-MANIDOO, the Great Spirit and Supreme Being of the Universe, and his feathers are animated by his strength, courage, and great vision. To receive an eagle feather of the bald eagle eagle is considered a great honor because it recognizes achievement and great acts or deeds.
Another eagle spirit called Mishoomis Giniw, the Golden Eagle Grandfather who is regarded as protector of Ziigwan, the spring time spirit, watches over all women, and particularly over women who are in new beginnings.
The feathers of both Eagle Grandfathers are being looked upon as anami`ewin mizhinaweg, prayer carriers of messages and giving thanks. Like the smoke of the sacred asemaa (tobacco), eagle feathers have the power to convey our thoughts and feelings and provide us with an opportunity to speak directly to the spirits with debwewin (a straight mind) and bekide’ewin (a pure heart); hence the title of the above wedding ring set, "Spirit Reaching the Sky."
