Native American

This Native American warrior looks out to the world with clear vision and strength. He walks the "Red Path" to enlightenment, connected to all directions and all creatures. The discipline required for leadership in the Native American culture is challenging. The feather represents the creative force and characteristics of birds which are strong, able to fly long distances, hunt well and care for their young. The circles represent all of life, the sun, the Creator, and the directions: North for spring time, new beginnings, South for the summer, hard work, production, West for the fall, harvest, time of preparation and North for the winter, fallow earth and time of reflection. Native Americans use many symbols in their prayers like the medicine pipe, music, feathers and animals. This warrior challenges you to give your best.

Native Americans use many symbols in their lives. The circle represents life, the sun and the Creator. Animal imagery is very important and each has a special meaning. Animals have powers which teach us about how to be in life: the buffalo is very powerful since it provides food, warmth from its fur and a way of life. The coyote is the "trickster," with the ability to find things and play jokes. Kokopelli, the little flute player, is the seed bringer and water-sprinkler, a fertility symbol found in ancient petroglyphs. Colors and designs have special meanings, telling stories of battles or hunts and status in the community. The brightly colored robes are examples of the beautiful handwork of Native Americans. Imagine being connected to the earth, listening to the rhythms of nature in the desert as you learn something of the ways of the Native American.
