Eagle Dancer
For many Native Americans, the EAGLE is a sacred and symbolic bird because it is able to fly so high and thus move freely between heaven and earth. The eagle has always been regarded by Indians as having supernatural powers, particularly the power to control thunder and rain. Many Indian tribes-among them the Iroquois, Comanche, Iowa, and Midwestern Calumet-traditionally performed Eagle Dances on occasions that called for divine intervention, since eagles were regarded as capable of carrying messages to the gods. Today, the Eagle Dance is a popular feature of many Native American powwows and is particularly associated with the Jemez and Tesuque pueblos in New Mexico, where it is performed every spring. The Eagle Dance varies from tribe to tribe, but it always portrays the life cycle of the eagle from birth to death, showing how it learns to walk and eventually to hunt and feed itself and its family. There is usually a chorus of male dancers, often wearing feathered war bonnets, who provide a singing and drumming accompaniment, and two central dancers who are dressed to resemble a male and a female eagle, with yellow paint on their lower legs, white on their upper legs, and dark blue bodies. Short white feathers are attached to their chests, which are also painted yellow, and they often wear wig-like caps with white feathers and a projecting yellow beak. Bands of EAGLE FEATHERS run the length of their arms, and they imitate the movements of the eagle with turning, flapping, and swaying motions.
