Ink on handmade Nepalese Lokta Paper
Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
An Eagle carrying blessings and prayers for life-giving rain clouds gathers among other Eagles who have formed into spiritual elements of good prayers. As one of the largest birds in the southwest, the Eagle embodies great strength and courage. For the Hopi people, the Eagle is a messenger to the spirit world. Eagle feathers are used in rituals to create Paaho or prayer feathers that are created for good blessings and prayers to all in this world.
