The Colorado Legal Eagles is a civil rights group based in Nederland,
Colorado. The mission of the Colorado Legal Eagles is to assist
in the establishment of a fair and just society. The Eagles recognize
certain inequities in society that exist solely for the political
and economic benefit of the few at the expense of the many. The
result is an unacceptable burden laid upon a broad class of citizens
is the heart and soul of the Eagles' work.
The Eagles are first and foremost Rainbows. The Rainbow is one
of the many broad classes of citizens suffering discrimination.
For many years the federal government has engaged in a policy of
oppression of the Rainbow Culture. The Rainbow Culture enshrines
the general respect for nature and believe there is no reason why
humans can not live upon our planet without destroying it's life
giving properties. We makes no apologies for these positions. The
Eagles will assist the right of Rainbow People to continue the struggle
for justice, to peaceably assemble on the land, to speak freely
of their cumulative knowledge and experiences, and to demonstrate
the value of this vision to others.
Therefore, the Eagles find it necessary to oppose federal regulations
designed to oppress and criminalize the activities of Rainbow. The
Eagles are moved to utilize all means necessary and legal, and enter
the political fight to defeat those forces of tyranny, and uphold
our right to gather.
Further, the Eagles shall maintain the right to intercede on behalf
of all those suffering at the hand of oppressive tyranny. May the
Great Spirit guide our way.
Eagle medicine is the power of the Great Spirit, the connection
to the Divine. It is the ability to live in the realm of spirit,
and yet remain connected and balanced within the realm of Earth.
Eagle soars, and is quick to observe expansiveness within the overall
pattern of life. From the heights of the clouds, Eagle is close
to the heavens where the Great Spirit dwells.
The feathers of Eagle are considered to be the most sacred of healing
tools. They have been used for centuries by shamans to cleanse the
auras of patients coming to them for healing. Within the belief
systems of North American tribes, Eagle represents a state of grace
achieved through hard work, understanding, and a completion of the
tests of initiation which result in the taking of one's personal
power. It is only through the trial of experiencing the lows in
life as well as the highs, and through the trial of trusting one's
connection to the Great Spirit, that the right to use the essence
of Eagle medicine is earned.
