EAGLES BANDEagle is a beautifully decorated “Ship Float” that narrates the story of how Mother Nature has blessed the “Idoma People”, haven brought them from a distant place across many seas, conquering many battles both on land and sea, to where they now call home today. The ocean is the beginning of life on Earth, and symbolizes formlessness, the unfathomable, and chaos. The ocean can also be seen as a symbol of stability, as it can exist largely unchanged for centuries. The ocean is considered to be boundless, a place where one can easily be lost, and can therefore be seen to represent the boundless span of life. Crossing it can be very dangerous and challenging too, it requires adequate preparation and planning; and most importantly a means.
