Native American Symbols And Meanings

Native Americans used symbols to express their ideas and the meaning behind them. They used symbols as a form of artwork that they wore as tattoos using pine needles, bird bones, or sharp stones that would prick the skin and color it with charcoal or ashes from cedar leaves. Native Americans would also draw the symbols on cave walls and believed that every person possess a spirit that is best depicted through these unique ideograms.

The symbols were usually based on geometric portrayals of the sun, moon and stars, natural phenomena like rain and thunderstorm, or animals such as ravens, bears, snakes, and owls.

Many of the symbols conveyed spiritual meanings and had religious connotation. They conveyed secret messages to other tribe members, provided directions, pointed out to good hunting areas, served as warning signs for dangerous grounds, and expressed the customs and culture of a tribe.
Nowadays, the Native American Symbols provide us with a fun and whimsical story that binds life, spirit, culture, and nature in one. (2)

Native American Symbol For Wolf

The Wolf symbol in Native American culture stands for loyalty, compassion, and fierceness. It is a symbol of both evil and good, both strength and endurance, guidance and leadership, protection and destruction.
Because of its multi-layered meanings, Native American tribes both revered and feared the wolf, incorporating it into their tribal ceremonies, myths, legends, and rituals.
Wolves were always portrayed as mighty warriors, while the wolf instinct was linked with intelligence, intuition, core family values, and was believed to give guidance in dreams.
Timber wolves are also represented in the mosaic of the Native American tribal culture – timber wolves howling at the moon were considered as highly spiritual creatures that had magical powers, and could speak to the gods and convey messages.

Native American Symbol For Protection

The Protection symbol is represented as two arrows with a circle in between. The arrows represent the main attack and defense weapon of the Native American tribes at the time. The circle in between the arrows signifies closeness and protection. The circle that stands for life is well-protected from two fronts and cannot be reached nor broken.
Another protection symbol is the the Turtle pictogram, which with its hard shell represents protection, perseverance, good health and longevity.

Native American Symbol For Strength

The Bear pictogram was the symbol of physical strength back in ancient times. As the black bear and the Grizzly bear were native to America, indigenous people associated bears with strength and power, and even wore necklaces from the claw of a bear.
They believed that wearing a bear’s claw will give them good health, but they also deemed those that wore such necklaces as strong and courageous for they’ve killed such a fierce animal.
The tribe’s member that would manage to kill a bear was usually highly respected and admired.
Dreaming about a bear, eating a part of it, or just touching it, was also believed to bring physical strength and bravery to the individual.

Native American Symbol For Love

Native American tribes used to communicate and convey stories, tradition, culture, and flits of ideas through illustrative and complex pictograms. They passed their dreams, knowledge, and history from generation to generation through those symbols.
While there are many symbols that often have several connotations, there is not one specific Native American Love symbol per se.
When you think about it, it’s a difficult symbol to convey, but the creative minds of Native Americans managed to find a way, and the closest one to it would be The Hummingbird symbol.

The Hummingbird symbol is expressed through mated pairs that stand one by the other and express love, affection, and devotion. The closest to the notion of love were the hummingbirds that also stand for eternity and the cycle of life.
Seeing a hummingbird was believed to be a good omen – especially before important events.

Native American Symbol For Warrior

The Warrior symbol reflects the war culture and the religious beliefs of the indigenous people.
The Warrior symbol has been found in burial sites that contained other weapons typical of the time such as axes and knives.
The Warrior symbol was also found to be engraved on pottery and other stone items.

Native American Symbol For Hope

The Hope symbol also known as Star Knowledge was used to mark events based on celestial alignment that provided hope and excitement for the future.
The eight-pointed star symbolizes hope and cardinal guidance, i.e., it points out to the 4 cardinal points (east, west, north and south) that lead people on the horizon:
The Star Knowledge also pointed to the onset of each season of the year, as each season marked a new beginning filled with hope and potential for the future. Overall, the Hope Symbol was seen as a good omen and a sign of prosperity.
