"Eagle is one of the most important beings in the art and mythology. It is respected for its intelligence and power, as well as its extraordinary vision, in both literal and figurative senses. In many regions, Eagle clan families are traditionally the most prominent, and the Eagle chiefs the most powerful. Eagles in [oral histories] are, likewise, usually noble characters. Eagle spirits are associated with lofty ideals and the pursuit of freedom" (Shearar 2000:44). – Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings and Symbols
