Paula says - "Navajo fetish maker Harold Davidson creates unique animals. Each of his pieces captures the essence of the animal spirit displaying character and his signature details. He decorates each piece with radiant colored feathers attached by colorful glass seed beads. His masterful etching of the stone provides a striking contrast. Each fetish is signed and dated. Caution: If you buy one, others will follow!"

BUFFALO MEDICINE

Buffalo was the major source of sustenance for indigenous cultures of the plains, giving meat for food, hides for shelter and clothing, and Spirit Medicine. The appearance of Buffalo is a sign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe and Spirit are being honored. Buffalo signals a time of abundance, prosperity and thankfulness.The medicine of Buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Buffalo Medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation, recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life.
