Duck teaches us how to balance our mind and our heart so they work as a unified whole. Duck also reminds us to filter out that which we need, and discard the rest. Duck brings new opportunities to move forward, and opportunities to dig up and heal the past.

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.
