Dragonfly keywords: Sight, Mastery, and Transition
Dragonfly is able to hover, instantly change directions, move forward, up, down, and even backwards, surpassing all other flighted animals in skill. Dragonfly has strong vision and is able to spot movement 40 feet away while flying up to 30 mph. Dragonfly is a master at what it does, and helps us find mastery within ourselves. Dragonfly teaches us how to live and grow in times of transition and change.
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.
