Arrow/Arrowhead: Used as a weapon for centuries, the arrow symbolizes protection and warding off of evil and enemies. Arrowheads represent alertness and direction.
Bear/Bear Claw: Bears are sacred animals in Southwestern culture, symbolizing power, and spiritual strength. Bear claw imagery connects humans to bears and is used as a symbol of leadership.
Buffalo: The buffalo sustained Southwesterns for centuries providing food and other materials. Buffalo images show a level of humility and are used as a reminder for humans to take only what they need.
Butterfly: In some beliefs, butterflies have been seen as messengers from the spirit world. People today use the butterfly as a symbol of transformation and peace.
Dragonfly: The flying insect represents freedom and forward-thinking. The dragonfly has often been used for strength when rebuilding after suffering some sort of hardship.
