While walking around gift shops at Mount St. Helens and Mesa Verde, I came across a few books that I picked up. I have always collected feathers that I find when walking and I found 13 while traveling. Looking through the book on feathers I discovered that most of the ones I found were from eagles. The other books were full of symbols from Native Americans. I was able to find some similarities in the symbols I created.

In Looking at Indian Art of the Northwest Coast I discovered U design form examples using feathers. I experimented with the feathers that I collected.
