Relationship Between Bald Eagles And Native Americans Highlighted at National Aviary Event

Takaji (greetings) My Relatives

I was honored this past weekend January 21 and 22, 2012 to represent Pittsburgh's COUNCIL OF THREE RIVERS AMERICAN INDIAN CENTER at a two-day special tribute to bald eagles sponsored by the National Aviary located in our city's North Side neighborhood. 

The aviary staff arranged a number of special informational tables in a large hall near the entrance of the building which presented to the visitors many of the facts pertaining to bald eagles and their habitat.

I was given the opportunity to man one of those informational tables to share with the guests of the aviary the many important concepts associated with the complex relationship between this sacred bird as well as its close relative the golden eagle, and the Indigenous people of North America.

As part of my display I set up a video presentation on a lap-top computer of one of our Indian Center Pow Wows in which many of the dancers are shown wearing regalia that features eagle feathers.



I had the pleasure to spend the two days of my experience at the aviary with the agency's director of education Bob Mulvihill. Bob was  wonderful company, enthusiastic and obviously excited about the role he plays at the aviary his energy and kindness was extremely refreshing!

The Great Spirit blessed us with wonderful weather on Sunday and the aviary was filled with guests so I had the opportunity to share the facts of Native eagle wisdom with many visitors and I was left with a desire to participate in this event again next year.
