Zaagi ' idiwin / Love

The teaching of Zaagi’ idiwin (Love) is represented by Migizii (Eagle), the one who carries all the teachings. Migizii is the closest animal to Creator and has seen many things within their lifetime. Love can be found within Migizii feathers, which is the highest honour that one can be gifted. Love is an act that can be gifted and received in many ways and forms; the giving and receiving of love is good for the health and wellness of oneself and others. Chi-Miigwetch.
