Perhaps his favourite treasure is the medicine pouch that his grandfather made especially for him. This is where he keeps many of his other treasurers [sic], including the sacred herbs his mother gave him. Matthew uses the herbs to remind him to be grateful for everything that nature gives us. Anotehr special gift is the eagle feather fromhis father. Matthew knows that the eagle is a symbol of the spiritual stre ngth of his culture.
