The Golden Eagle is a figure from Shishalh First Nation folklore. Closely akin to the Thunderbird, it is a supernatural creature which represented power, courage, and prestige. But the "prestige" in this case was not based on its power and courage alone but on the good deeds this creature would commit using this power and courage. Golden Eagle was the bird of the people and the stories pertaining to it all revolve around our service to humankind and the notion of building unity to accomplish great feats. It is the perfect representation of what we are accomplishing through this organization. All involved in this endeavour have the Golden Eagle in their heart and have resolved to work together to fight against all odds.
As an organization Golden Eagle employs a number of novel approaches to realize our mandate to protect and enhance Indigenous lives.

We are fully accountable to our donors and our transparency is evident upon visiting our Real time Online Ledger which is publicly available to all website visitors.
