Here is another: Sometime in the 1980's, a matriarch of the Nisqually tribe was dying and she went to the hospital just for comfort. And soon, eagles began to gather. They kept coming until there were twelve...even made the local newspaper, never before seen in downtown Olympia, WA. They stayed until the elder died, then flew off.
Finally someone got the idea to ask her family, who had come every day for drumming and prayers..."Oh yes, our mother was of the eagle clan, and the eagles came to guide her soul home."
