A young Ojibwa boy grows up with his grandfather’s teachings and learns the values of life.



A young Ojibwa boy grows up with his grandfather’s teachings and learns the values of life through the lessons of history, culture and the natural environment. His willingness to learn these important values gives an additional sense of accomplishment to his grandfather’s life and, in return, the grandfather gives his Eagle Feather to the young boy. This act of giving is an honor among the Native people, who revere the all-seeing messenger of the Creator, the eagle.
