"Occasionally while hiking in the desert near my home. I'll get lucky and see a golden eagle. The sight of this magnificent bird soaring free in its environment always inspires me. The eagle was a source of inspiration for the Native Americans, too. The Indians envisioned the golden eagle as the embodiment of the Great Spirit. By wearing eagle's feathers, they believed themselves to be possessed of part of the Great Spirit's power. To view a golden eagle while on a raiding or hunting expedition was considered especially lucky. Here three Crow Indian warriors watch the silent flight of a golden eagle, probably pausing to give thanks to the Great Spirit for "The Good Omen."-- Bev Doolittle
