Feathers are a product of birds. As such (and as countless ancient cultures believe) the feather is inseparable from the bird. And that means feathers take on the meaning of the avian kind. So, we look to birds for their symbolic meaning. Birds represent freedom and inspiration. They are also symbols of travel. Not just physical travel, but travel with the mind and spirit as birds have an aerial view of our world.

Because of their connection with the vast, limitless skies - birds (and feathers) have been associated with the gods and goddesses of the heavens. In fact, many Native American and Aboriginal tribes New feather in sacred ceremonies. The Iroquois for example New feathers to give thanks for all their bounty. They would have ceremony called the Great Feather Dance. Feathers would be everywhere during this dance. Iroquois would don them as robes, weave them in their hair, and even tie them to animals. This was an act of showing gratitude. It was a process of reverence - of honoring the great gods and goddesses - particularly the triple goddess known as Deohako. These three goddesses represented the main staples of the tribe's existence which was: Corn, Beans and Squash.
