Fetishes represent unique and very personal gifts, they are wonderful for the holidays, as congratulations for life changing events and more.

American Indians have used fetishes throughout history. Fetishes are believed to hold magical powers and protect the owner or craftsmen from problems of mind or body. Some believe that their powers can even protect against problems of the universe. It is also believed that the care a fetish receives is directly related to the protection it will provide. Indians believe that fetishes must be properly cared for. They are given offerings of cornmeal and kept in special turquoise covered fetish pots or pouches. Often fetishes are adorned with turquoise, arrowheads and feathers. These are offerings to the fetish for gifts received or anticipated.
