    The Eagle is one of the most powerful and important symbols in Pacific Northwest Indian art and life. Eagle down, a symbol of peace and friendship, was sprinkled before guests in welcome dances and on other ceremonial occasions; eagle feathers were used in many rituals and worn on masks, headdresses and dance aprons.
