Goldsboro resident and Haliwa-Saponi Indian Dreamweaver describes the significance of his award winning watercolor, "The Protectors." The owl feathers are symbolic of prayer and a tribute to his ancestors, he said. "When we pray, our prayers are taken from Earth to the eagles by the owl," Dreamweaver said. "So, in order to pray, we need the owl."
