The Eagle (Migizi) is one of our most revered and respected beings in creation. These beautiful birds represent our link to the Creator (Gchi Manidoo) and our connection to all that is spiritual for our people. It is taught that when we lay down our tobacco (sema), Migizi comes down to gather our prayers and then soars high up into Ishpeming (Above) to bring them to the Gchi Manidoo. Read more about the Anishinaabe teachings of the Migizi below.
