Owl reminds you to trust your inner sight. Owl sees through darkness and pinpoints prey under several feet of snow. She is a symbol of wisdom and magic because of her ability to conquer the secrets of the night. Legends speak of the owl's yellow eyes as representative of the sun at night.
Zuni Fetishes were considered to be so powerful by the U.S. Government that in the late 1800's Frank Hamilton Cushing was sent out to the Zuni Reservation to live among the Zuni people and investigate and study the mysterious power of the Zuni Fetishes. Zuni fetishes were also so well respected by other tribes, that they were and still are in high demand for a variety of purposes.
