Eagle Dancer
I took a girl I mentor to the Grand Canyon for a day. While we were heading back to the train we came across a demonstration of Native American dances. This was an Eagle Dance. I was amazed at how well he was able to mimic the movements of an Eagle soaring on the thermals. If you have ever watched the birds you will notice that they can control the feathers on the wingtip individually to get the most lift as conditions change. This dancer was able to do the same. That intense awareness of the natural world around them has always been a fascinating aspect of Native American cultures for me.
