Birds are revered as bringers of messages and symbols of change and often symbolized light-hearted freedom. Their feathers have many spiritual, ceremonial and ritual uses. Native American tribes decorated feathers and attached to sacred pipes and sticks so their prayers could take wind and be received by the elders and Great Spirit. In many ancient cultures feathers are inextricably tied to the belief that birds, as spirit guides, walk through different stages of life with a person, teaching and guiding them, and protecting them. 𓆃
