Native American Osprey Mythology

Ospreys are considered a type of eagle in many Native American tribes, and are accorded the same respect bald and golden eagles are. In coastal tribes where ospreys are most commonly seen, they sometimes play ‘police’ or guardian roles in traditional legends, and seeing one is sometimes considered to be a warning of danger to come. In other legends, Fish-Hawk (Osprey) is a character noted for his pride or even arrogance.

Ospreys are also used as clan animals in some Native American cultures. Tribes with Osprey Clans include the Menominee tribe (whose Fish-Hawk Clan is named Penekekonaew).
