Zuni fetish Buffalo or Bison
Zuni Fetish representing a buffalo or bison. It’s made of Jasper with Turquoise decoration.
For Native tribe’s traditions – Zuni, Pueblo and Navajo – fetishes are considered as the link between humans and supernatural forces.
They believed that into every animal lives a Spirit, whose specific characteristics are attributed to each one. So, as a medicine, the strength of the Bear – guide animal of west regions – is the power of introspection, of self look inward, ability to focus and overcome obstacles, finding our own balance.
