American Indian Jewelry
goro’s Feather Pendant was created with the motif of eagle’s feather.
The eagle feather is a very important item for American Indians.
Eagles are considered to be the closest animal to the sun and a messenger between them and the gods. The Eagle Feather is an important item for communicating with the gods and is an essential part of American Indian ceremonies.
At the same time, Eagle Feather represents welcoming, friendship, and peace. American Indians have a custom of gifting the Eagle’s Feather as a sign of friendship. It is also a symbol of war achievement, and it was an honor to have many eagle feathers.
Goro Takahashi met American Indians and was given the name of “Yellow Eagle” at the Lakota naming ceremony. It is said that he was greatly inspired by the eagle’s feather, which led to the creation of goro’s signature feather pendant.
