Cultural Use

The eagle is held in high regards in many Native American cultures. For the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma members, these birds carry prayers to the Creator and therefore are the only living thing that has seen the Creator’s face. By providing care to eagles that are non-releasable, the tribe is giving back to the birds that have helped them for centuries. Iowa Tribal members can use the naturally molted feathers from the eagles at the Grey Snow Eagle House for their cultural needs.
