  • Little Skookum - Cycle Song-Dance in the Spirit of Native American Potlatch

    5:20

    A folk song ideally intended to be sung, danced, drummed, and dreamed in nine verses, in nine cycles, each invoking good guidance on the part of a different guardian spirit in the name of enduring peace and prosperity. Best experienced with family and friends or at a gathering of the tribe. Inspired by Little Skookum Inlet on Puget Sound and the nearby Squaxin Island Tribal Center.

  • OSTENVEGRS TRAVEL - Bald Eagle s Flight

    5:45

    This video is a tribute dedicated to this wonderfull animal and those people who believes at his great spirit he irradiates when he raises in flight and whom respects this sacred Being.
    Original title trasmigration in the bald eagle
    Check my music at this link


    The Bald Eagle is a sacred bird in some North American cultures, and its feathers, like those of the Golden Eagle, are central to many religious and spiritual customs among Native Americans. Eagles are considered spiritual messengers between gods and humans by some cultures.Many pow wow dancers use the eagle claw as part of their regalia as well. Eagle feathers are often used in traditional ceremonies, particularly in the construction of regalia worn and as a part of fans, bustles and head dresses. The Lakota, for instance, give an eagle feather as a symbol of honor to person who achieves a task. In modern times, it may be given on an event such as a graduation from college. The Pawnee considered eagles as symbols of fertility because their nests are built high off the ground and because they fiercely protect their young. The Kwakwaka'wakw scattered eagle down to welcome important guests. The Choctaw explained that the Bald Eagle, who has direct contact with the upper world of the sun, is a symbol of peace.

    During the Sun Dance, which is practiced by many Plains Indian tribes, the eagle is represented in several ways. The eagle nest is represented by the fork of the lodge where the dance is held. A whistle made from the wing bone of an eagle is used during the course of the dance. Also during the dance, a medicine man may direct his fan, which is made of eagle feathers, to people who seek to be healed. The medicine man touches the fan to the center pole and then to the patient, in order to transmit power from the pole to the patient. The fan is then held up toward the sky, so that the eagle may carry the prayers for the sick to the Creator.

    Current eagle feather law stipulates that only individuals of certifiable Native American ancestry enrolled in a federally recognized tribe are legally authorized to obtain Bald or Golden Eagle feathers for religious or spiritual use. The constitutionality of these laws has been questioned by Native American groups on the basis that it violates the First Amendment by affecting ability to practice their religion freely.
