Subject: Native-american symbolism?

Has anybody noticed that sound when bannet touches paulie's hand and asks her to come of the table? Paulie rapidly withdraws her hand and at that moment you hear the sound of a bird flapping it's wing, before paulie says "don't ever touch a raptor".

It seems as if she more and more starts to believe this whole 'raptor-thing'.

I wonder if there's a connection with native-american (or rather canadian) culture there. Does the falcon have some sort of symbolic meaning in native-american culture?

I believe the dreamcatcher we see dangling in the room of the girs is a very canadian symbol. Does it have feathers of a falcon attached to it?

You also hear some sort of native american chant interwoven with the music when paulie runs towards the raptor that night before hell breaks loose, and at the end when we see the raptor fly away.

And then there's menzie's with clearly very distinct indian features, gazing at the raptor at the end of the film, with that serious look...

And the scene where paulie asks mouse to cut her hair. That blood-of-the-raptor thing...

I don't know anything about canadian culture, but i like how they spent attention to a creating a credible 'couleur locale'.
