Eagle Feather: An Honour is one of popular children's picture books by Ojibwa artist and writer Ferguson Plain. In this story about a young boy and his Mishomis (grandfather), the author presents the reader with a moving story that explains the significance of the eagle feather in Ojibwe culture. The young boy grows up listening to his grandfather's teaching and stories. The boy learns about plants as medicines, camping, traditional songs, values, and lessons from the environment. As summer approaches, the boy's grandmother completes his Powwow outfit. When Powwow time arrives, the boy wants to remain by his grandfather's bedside instead of dancing at the Powwow. But grandfather encourages the boy to dance at the Powwow. During the Powwow, the boy is called to come forward and receive the honour of an Eagle Feather. Grandfather's gift acknowledges his grandson's accomplishments. Ferguson Plain expertly weaves cultural content and Ojibwa words into the story set in a contemporary First Nation. His simple and effective line drawings of the boy and the Elder convey the warmth of their unique relationship. Subtle background illustrations evoke the spiritual aspects of traditional teachings conveyed throughout the story. The author introduces Ojibwa words and phrases into the story and provides glossary of the terms. This book makes an important contribution to children's literature by explaining Ojibwe traditional values while dealing with a contemporary theme such as death and dying all within the context of First Nation's storytelling.
