The Hiawatha Belt

If one were to gather all of the books, research papers, and magazine articles about the Iroquois Confederacy in one place, you would need to reinforce the floor with steel beams. No other native group has garnered as much ink as the League of the Six Nations, also known as the Haudenosaunee, or "People of the Longhouse." Inexplicably, there is another "Iroquois Confederacy" that has somehow slipped through the cracks of popular history, yet its role in the unfolding colonial drama of the northeast woodlands is just as critical.

The Eagle feather, which represents duality, tells the story of life. It tells of the many duality's that exist in life, such as light and dark, male and female, substance and shadow, summer and winter, peace and war, life and death. It reminds us of the teachings that Opposites are extensions of themselves like two opposing hands of the same body. Native American culture looks upon the Eagle feather as a sacred symbol of the balance necessary for the Circle of life to continue.

This Stained Glass Feather Case is 15 inches long by 5 inches wide and 2 inches deep.

Dreamcatcher with stained glass border

Although dreamcatchers did not originate with the Iroquois tribe, but were first known to be used by the Chippewa of the Ojibway, they have been adopted by some Iroquois, and also by the "new age" culture. Many New age and Native American gift shops sell dreamcatchers, which are believed by many help in "improving" one's dream life. Although they may be viewed by many as merely at New Age decoration, those who cherish their dream catchers and treat them with honor and respect often claim that their dream life improves, and as a result enhances their waking life.
