SOARING EAGLE

"Mohawk Artist Tonya Maracle, is a registered Band member with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in Ontario, Canada. She has lived on the Territory her entire life, and has operated her arts and crafts business, Soaring Eagle, for the past 26 years there.

Tonya grew up (literally!) in her family’s business, Native Renaissance II, a wholesale/retail native craft business run by her parents for the past 40 years. She learned the traditional method of making native crafts from her grandfather and father at a very young age. They also taught her the Mohawk language and instilled in her a sense of pride in her native heritage and culture.

Tonya comes from a long line of talented, creative family members, including several well-known artists, musicians and craftsmen. Surrounded by such an atmosphere, she fell into her life’s work quite naturally. After working for her parents for several years making traditional native crafts, and in many other facets of their company, she decided to spread her wings and create her own company. In 1995 she founded Soaring Eagle Native Arts & Crafts. Tonya thoroughly enjoys every aspect of operations, but states her favourite department is Product Development and Design. Every product carried by Soaring Eagle is originally designed by Tonya, and is handcrafted on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. She is proud to say all her company’s products are meticulously handcrafted using all natural materials, such as genuine deerskin, cowhide, horsehair, pheasant feathers, deer antler, semi-precious stones, and high quality beads such as glass and ceramic.

Tonya plans to continue operating Soaring Eagle and producing beautiful hand-made native crafts. She hopes to one day pass on all she has learned to her own children, nieces and nephews. For now, she continues to do what she does best, educating others about her native heritage through her arts and crafts."

(The deer products are from the Virginian White Tail deer which is a non- endangered species.)

The Ojibwa Dream Catcher Legend

An Ojibwa grandmother and her grandson were watching a spider spin its web next to their sleeping place. 

The child reached out to squash the spider but the elderly lady stopped him, telling him he should not hurt spiders.

As a reward for her kindness the spider told her

“I will spin a web that hangs between you and the moon that will trap all bad dreams and protect you from them”

 

The dream catcher’s web will trap bad dreams or dark spirits, and allow the good dreams to slip through the small hole in the centre to the sleeper below.

A small dream catcher would be hung on a child’s cradle board

and often there would be one hung in an Ojibwa lodge above the family sleeping area.

 

Each part of a dream catcher has a symbolic meaning:

* The Hoop, traditionally in the shape of teardrop, is now more usually circular and represents the Sacred Circle of Life

* The Web represents the spider’s web to catch the dreams.

* The Feathers are the path the good dreams follow to reach the sleeper

* Beads or  Gem Stones in the web - a single bead represents the spider; several beads represent trapped dreams.
