Native American: The sacred Iroquois Eagle

Native American: The sacred Iroquois Eagle

Happy Native American Heritage Month

This post is an example of personal branding because of how Benjamin Franklin branded the symbol on the U.S. Shield.

In honor of this month we will post a fact everyday to educate the history of Native Americans and the hidden truths not known.

Fact of the day:
Benjamin Franklin, coauthor of the Constitution, thought the idea of a government like the Iroquois Confederacy could be used by the English colonies. The eagle on the U.S. shield is the Iroquois bald eagle—also a symbol for the Iroquois. Native Americans consider the bald eagle sacred.
