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.

Jet (Acoma Jet) - A solid, durable type of lignite coal that originated from wood material. It is mined around the Acoma Pueblo region, among other places, thus the name Acoma Jet. It is very popular with Indian artists for carving fetishes. It is also used for inlaying jewelry but usually is not used in jewelry stone sets. Jet can be heavy or very lightweight and it is sometimes mistaken for plastic. Read about stones.

Roadrunner Medicine

Roadrunner, a long-legged member of the cuckoo family, 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.
