Legend of the Star Quilt

legend-of-the-star-quiltTraditionally Native Americans honor special people with a Star Quilt.  The Star signifies patriotism and friendship. The quilts are often done in red, white and blue and come in many forms. Our quilt offers us two other symbols, The Peace Pipe and the Eagle. The sacred pipe is offered to the Spirit of the World. The actual pipe is adorned with 4 ribbons and an Eagle feather. The black ribbon is for the West where thunder and rain originate. The white is for the North where the great white cleansing wind blows. Red is for the East where light springs forth and the morning star lives. Yellow is for the South, where summer and power of growth comes forth. The Eagle feather stands for the one which is like our Father. The full Eagle represents freedom, life and power.
