When Amelia Peter-Paul was 11 years old she received a eagle feather from her mother. In Amelia's native culture the eagle feather is a symbol of honor and courage. She proved herself worthy of such a gift by trying to protect her grandmother from being stabbed. Amelia was stabbed 26 times with a pair of scissors. She needed many, many stiches to close her wounds.
Everyone in her community had heard of Amelia's bravery in saving her grandmother's life. Amelia has received many awards for her bravery,courage and strength.
Amelia is now 14 years old and a role model for young kids everywhere.She has become a talented native dancer and is very busy.
