The Eagle Dance is performed when tribes seek help of a higher power or are in need of divine intervention. The tribes perform the dance in the hope of curing illness, asking for rain, winning a battle, and much more. Many tribes still perform this dance to keep the history alive.
This dance is meant to represent and replicate the movements of an eagle when it is flying or hunting. It is meant to represent an eagle’s life from birth to death. The dance consists of various songs and dances that are performed one after the other. Two dancers, wearing garments that replicate the coloring and appearance of an eagle with large and extravagant feathers, perform the movements of the eagle in the center of the circle and other dancers provide singing and drumming.
