 Through the Eye of the Feather
 Native American Visions

By: Gail Tuchman

The feather is a spiritual symbol for Native American Nations from east to west.  This short book is a reflection on the symbolism of feathers and the pervasive nature of their importance in Native American culture. The first-person essays include personal visions about feather symbolism, craft, and use told by men and women from six different tribal backgrounds: Apache (Lipan and Mescalero), Cherokee, Crow, Navajo, Lakota Sioux, and Algonquian. They do not represent officially the views of particular nations. Well-known ceremonial importance is brought into sharp focus when art (the making of fans), religion (the Sun Dance, the Native American Church), and the nature and beliefs about particular birds (and the use of their feathers) are discussed. George Ancona's beautiful action photographs, along with historical photos, enhance the very general text. Celebrating Native culture, this nontechnical book is suitable for public libraries and young adult collections. 

Through the Eye of the Feather includes over 60 photographs.
