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. Read more about fetishes.

Jet (Acoma Jet) - A solid, durable type of lignite coal that originated from wood. It is mined around the Acoma Pueblo region, among other places, thus the name Acoma Jet, or Jet for short. It is very popular for carving fetishes. It is also used for inlaying but usually not used in stone sets. It can range from very lightweight to heavy.

Red-winged Blackbird is one of the most abundant birds across North America. It is often seen atop cattails, along soggy roadsides, and on telephone wires. In wintry regions, their early arrival and tumbling song are happy indications of the return of spring.
