Seal is a totem of both water and land. It reminds you that you have access to the deep wells of knowledge within yourself, and just as seals come to land to give birth, so you can bring that knowledge forth into your own world. In animal lore, Seal is the keeper of wisdom and can guide us to what is hidden within ourselves. Keywords are wisdom, self knowledge, and walking between worlds.
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.
