Haida artist April White (SgaanaJaad of the Yaghu’jaanaas Raven Clan) has created an astonishing image of an eagle dancing in the sky. When looking closely one can see a human form hidden beneath it. A human articulates his arms inside the wings so they rise and fall powerfully to impel him upward with strength. The eagle wears a dance apron adorned with a salmon head design around his waist. The apron is at the same time its dance regalia and tail feathers. The bird dances in full moon. The light is represented by the circular outline of the design which also frames the silhouette of the eagle.
