Zuni Serpentine Turtle Fetish by Travis Nieto
North American Indians have long used animal fetishes to connect with the higher forces of Nature and Spirit. By accessing the particular animal spirit within each fetish, we ask to “borrow” or enhance such a quality within ourselves.
Fetish: Turtle- Turtle is a symbol of Mother Earth. He represents self-reliance, tenacity, and longevity.
