Giizhigo-aadisookaan literally means: supernatural grandfather/maker of stories from the sky. Design and title of the pendant refer to the spirit and flight of Ogimaa Migizi , the bald eagle. American Bald Eagles are considered sacred within all indigenous Native American communities across Turtle Island (North America). Eagle feathers are viewed as spirits in themselves, and therefore honored with great care and shown the deepest respect.
The Elders tell us that carrying an eagle feather is a sacred act and that it comes along with great responsibilities since it is believed the power of a feather comes directly from the Thunderbirds; a person who is worthy of bearing an eagle feather must therefore acknowledge that he or she is recognized by the Thunder Grandfathers themselves as being able to use their formidable spirit powers.
To be given a feather of Ogimaa Migizi or Gimishoomisinaan Giniw (Grandfather Golden Eagle) is therefore one of the greatest honors to receive, because it recognizes achievement and great acts or deeds.
