Prized for their beauty and spiritual renewal, fetishes have long been an important part of Native American Culture. When a Fetish maker prays over his created work, a mystical power is believed to become released, assisting a person in finding a solution to their present problems. All Southwestern tribes make and use fetishes, however, the Zuni people have developed a reputation for being skillful carvers. Among the Zuni, fetishes offer good luck, protection, and hunting guidance from the inner spirit of each carved animal.
Ravens are symbols of magic, transformation, mystery, and guidance.
