Bird symbols are very special to the Native Americans, their ability to soar above the clouds, perhaps to the heavens, and their sense of freedom inspired many. The many birds of North America are featured as bird symbols, many having different meanings to different tribes. However, because of their amazing power of flight, many are revered as bringers of messages and symbols of change. They include song birds, water birds and birds of prey. Birds often symbolised light-hearted freedom and the Feathers have many spiritual & ritual uses.

The Carver of this bird is Daryl Shack - It is a rescued piece of a large estate collection.

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.

Ships with Certificate of Authenticity. Packaged in a natural recycled giftbox. All fetishes ship with a small bag of blessed blue cornmeal which should stay with your fetish.
