> Visit our art blog to read about the topic of the hawk and its connection with the daylight and the sun and the Thunderbirds in Anishinaabe cosmology.
Gete-ayaa'ag, our ancestors, admired Gekek, the Hawk, for its physical beauty, speed, endurance, perseverance, fearlesness, and sharp eyesight. They acknowledged him as a spirit grandfather who bears on his wings and brings to earth and her Peoples great wisdom, broad perspectives and a deep mental awareness.
In a cosmological sense of the most sacred nature, Gekek is gekinoo'amaaged (a teacher)who teaches anishinaabeg (mankind) to live in balance with all things that support mino-bimaadiziwin, the sacred web of life. As a prominent member of the binesiwag, the Winged Ones, he draws our attention to the light of Giizis, the day-sun, and in doing this he remind us of how much we are all connected with GICHI-MANIDOO, the Great Mystery of the Universe.
