Hawk Warrior

Hawk Warrior

Piece description from the artist

An American Indian warrior stands upon a rocky cliff side. On his arm sits his best friend, a red-tailed hawk. The man wears dark brown and red war paint on his face, arms, and bare chest and carries as tomahawk. Both he and the hawk look across the forested valley dominated by an ominous, jagged, snow peaked mountain.

To many Native Americans, hawks are a powerful spiritual symbol, though, the meaning does vary from tribe to tribe. To some, they offer protection from evil spirits and represent the elements of storms, to others the represent speed, dedication, and good vision. The feathers of a Red Tailed hawk are often considered sacred and are used in ceremonies much like eagle feathers. Possession of such feathers is subject to the Eagle Feather law.
