What is a Fetish?

A fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Although carved from many types of rock, fishrock is traditional. Read more about fetishes.

Pipestone, also known as catlinite, is a form of clay called argillite with a high iron content that colors it a deep red to pale orange. Pipestone was discovered in southwestern Minnesota by the Sioux Indians, who consider it a sacred material and use it to carve pipes and other ceremonial objects. It is easy to carve because of its lack of quartz. Read about stones

 

Roadrunner Medicine

Roadrunner is a large black and white mottled bird with strong feet, a long tail and an over sized bill. It can run up to 18 miles per hour but can only fly for a few seconds at a time. Road Runner has a clownish gait when running or walking and reminds us to laugh at ourselves and not take things too seriously. Road Runner is one of the few birds quick enough to kill a rattlesnake and he teaches mental sharpness, quick thinking and fast responses and reflexes - knowing when to act quickly and efficiently when ideas and opportunities appear.
