Crow (Apsaalooke) hunter raises his hand in prayer to the eagle as they
pause on their late winter journey through what would become known as
Jackson Hole. The eagle typified courage, quickness, and strength
to the Native American, and was prayed to in order to receive those
abilities. Perhaps in his vision quest he had received the eagle
as his spiritual guide, and he is asking the eagle for help as they
travel in search of elk.
