Mountain lion fetishes are carried by travelers to protect them on their journey and also by hunters to help ensure a successful hunt. Guardian of the North…the mountain lion symbolizes personal power, resourcefulness, leadership, intuition and loyalty.

 

Fetishes are carved into different animals and supernatural spirits, each a significant symbol to the Zuni people. The animals and spirits depicted through these fetishes were believed to have certain characteristics that could be transferred into the carvings themselves. If you owned a fetish, you would then inherit the respective properties that your fetish represents. However, until the carving is blessed by a Zuni spiritual leader, it remains an intricately carved piece of art.

 The mountain lion symbolizes personal power, resourcefulness, leadership, intuition and loyalty.
