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.
Badger Spirit - Badger has a close connection to Mother Earth and can help you get grounded and focus on what is important when you are lost and confused. Badger teaches you to stand your ground, walk your own path at your own pace - to have faith in your own abilities to overcome challenges no matter what others may think.
Medicine Bundle - Many fetishes have a medicine bundle, offering bundle, or adornment tied on the back of the animal that consists of coral seed beads, shell heishi, feathers and other stone pieces. The bundle may be used as an offering to the fetish, to evoke the spirit of the fetish or to increase the strength of a fetish.
