According to Indian tradition, eagles are revered as the king of birds with a special link to the heavens because they fly so high. Given this belief, an Indian who is bestowed a feather from an eagle is considered chosen among his tribesmen. In order to receive this gift, an Indian must commit an act of bravery, such as fighting a bear. He is then awarded a symbol of courage, the eagle feather. The gift is then celebrated through elaborate ritual. Revere the lore and might of this honor with the Gift of the Eagle Feather T-Shirt from The Mountain. Courage and respect will come your way in this powerful tee.
