A transformation can be described as the spiritual metamorphosis of human into animal, or between various animals. According to Inuit tradition, human beings could travel between the physical and spiritual worlds. Humans could also transform into animals and animals could transform into human beings.

The eagle is believed to be the creature with the closest relationship with the creator. Soaring to great heights, he can travel between the physical and the spiritual world. The Eagle as a whole signifies focus, strength, peace, leadership, and ultimate prestige. The wings of an eagle symbolize the balance and co-dependency between females and males, and how each gender must work together in order to achieve harmonious results.
