Eagle offering: Indian Country Today Media Network West Coast Editor Valerie Taliman, a citizen of the Navajo Nation, had a special visit from an eagle near Juneau, Alaska while fishing for salmon with Tlingit friends. They suggested she make an offering of the baby King salmon she caught, and as she prayed in Navajo, the eagle listens and acknowledges her prayer. A rare blessing in Tlingit and Haida homelands that will be cherished forever.
