Native American Owl Symbolism

Owl is a night bird with a large head and large eyes. Owl's eyes cannot move in their sockets but its head can rotate up to 270 degrees. With exceptional vision, acute hearing, silent flight, Owl is a stealthy and effective hunter. Native Americans attribute Owl with wisdom and sacred knowledge and call upon Owl medicine to help them see through deception, external appearances and illusion and to discover hidden truths. Plains Indians wear owl feathers to protect against evil spirits.

What is Antler?

Antler is a hornlike, bony growth, usually branched, that grows in pairs on the head of a deer, moose, elk, caribou, or other members of the deer family. Antlers occur on the heads of male deer and on some related species of either sex. Because of antler's rich brown colors and ease of carving, it is a preferred medium of many carvers. Antlers are a renewable resource, as they are shed each year and grow more branches each season as the animal ages.
