The eagle is one of the animals that men always admired. Her majesty and fierceness, her strength, contributed in having the eagle held as sacred by many cultures, from Greeks to Persians, from Egyptians to Celts. Like the lion, the eagle is often associated to the sun, and it´s not by chance that she often appears, like the lion, in many araldic patterns. In history, eagles have been the mark of many leaders, since Romans, and usually her wings mean protection, and her talons mean ruin to enemies. To Haida people, the eagle is one of the most important totemic animals, along with the raven.
