The Eagle is the guardian and master or prey god of the Upper regions because he flies through the skies without tiring and his coat is speckled like the clouds. He is the younger brother of the wolf and the older brother of the mole. The Eagle is the messenger to the gods and his fetish represents power, balance, dignity, vision, higher truth and grace. In Zuni culture a fetish represents the animal spirit thought to reside in the stone. The eagle is found in both the healing and the hunter directional fetish sets.
