"Eagle is one of the most important beings in the art and [oral histories]. It is respected for its intelligence and power, as well as its extraordinary vision, in both the literal and figurative senses. Eagle feathers and down are sacred: traditionally, shamans believed in their healing powers and used them in a variety of ceremonial and ritual contexts, such as honouring a respected guest. In the art, Eagle is identified by a powerful beak whose upper half ends in a strong curve (Shearar 2000: 44). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings and Symbols
