An important symbol and tool used by the Navajo Medicine Man (or “Hatathlie”) is the eagle feather. Healing ceremonies and all weddings require eagle feathers to be present. They create the bridge or connection from our world to the spiritual world to send the prayers for healing and to receive the blessings needed to bring harmony and balance to the people.
