CCS’ Office of Indian Education recently honored graduating American Indian seniors during a special drive-thru Eagle Feather Ceremony in the parking lot of the Educational Resource Center. Each senior received an eagle feather in a keepsake box. According to the Office of Indian Education, the feather symbolizes trust, honor, strength, wisdom, power, and freedom and is deeply revered as a sign of high honor. In Native American culture, it is believed that all things possess an inherent virtue, power, and wisdom. The feather, for example, is a powerful symbol that signifies honor and a connection between the owner, the Creator, and the bird from which the feather came.
