Native American Owl...

This owl is called Steampunk Owl...
But as you can see my Owl is Native...

My niece is visiting for 4 days,
My brother's daughter and she is part 
Native American...
She is an awesome girl...
And she is also exactly 2 weeks older than my
I could go on and on about how wonderful she is...
and she is... LOL
But she is my inspiration for this awesome  Native American creation...

Here is a little Native Owl Lore:

Some Native American cultures link owls with supernatural knowledge and divination.
 In the Menominee myth of The Origin of Night and Day, Wapus (rabbit) encounters Totoba (the saw-whet owl, Aegolious acadicus) and the two battle for daylight (wabon) and darkness (unitipaqkot) by repeating those words.
 Totoba errs and repeats "wabon" and daylight wins, but Wapus permits that night should also have a chance for the benefit of the conquered, and thus day and night were born. 
The Pawnees view the owl as a symbol of protection; the Ojibwa, a symbol of evil and death, as well as a symbol of very high status of spiritual leaders of their religion; and the Pueblo, associated with Skeleton Man, the god of death and spirit of fertility and for the Apaches view the owl as the most feared of all creatures
