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.

Mole Symbolism

Mole is associated by many Native American tribes with the underworld, representing the downward direction, the color black, earth and agriculture. Pueblo tribes consider mole a medicine animal and one of the guardians of the six directions. Zuni use the mole fetish for protection, healing and hunting power.
