There are four clans in Gitxaala, my home village, also known as Kitkatla, B.C. All children are born into the clan, or tribe of the mother. I was born Eagle and it is the first of the series of four clans, or tribes as they are also known at home.
All stories and totems are passed down from mother to children. Eagle rock is an outcropping on the point in front of our home. I used to sit there and watch the world go by, daydream about the big world out there, and look for images in the clouds. Eagle Cry was an instant creation coming from my time on Eagle Rock where I enjoyed the Eagles.
