Artist's Description

The Turkey Vulture is known to the Cherokee as Peace Eagle, for it kills nothing. Though the Turkey Vulture is often looked down upon, he actually looks down from the skies and knows all that happens on and to our Mother Earth.

The story is told that long ago, before Humans were created, the Sun got too hot and was too close to the Earth. The Animals had a Council Fire to discuss what to do about this. After the Fox and Opossum did their best to move the Sun, the Vulture stepped up to do his part.

At that time, he had a beautiful full head of feathers. Vulture flew to the Sun, putting his head against it to push it further from the Earth. He pushed and flapped his great wings, and finally moved the Sun a safe distance from Earth.

When Vulture returned, all the feathers had been burned off his head. He spoke at the Council fire, saying that he would not be able to provide this service again, and that in the future, all beings must pray for help and use their own heads to make sure it never gets too hot again.

At Lake Estes where I walk every morning, there is a group of 10-13 Turkey Vultures. They soar overhead, they sit in groups watching over the lake, and they gather in the Morning Sun to greet the day. I always feel blessed to see them and to find a feather dropped upon the Earth as a sacred gift.
