Spiritual animal according to American Indians ?
 
How to know accordin to what they had believed ?

Closest I've found is "medicine cards " which liste a lot of animal symbols based on native American beliefs. The credibility of their sources is questionable, though. Other than that it just depends on what you can find from each tribe. Not all tribes have the same lore after all.

Some are passed on according to clan or totem and depends on your bloodline/family.

Some are gained through experience and lets say vision quest or ceremonial activities. Or passed with a naming ceremony.

Some are just concluded as, Hey these guys are always around, especially in strong spiritual situations.

Just a few thoughts from the opinion gallery.:duckie:

Sorry about the late response BigJohn
I just now seen this.

Yes, I agree with you.
I find it funny sometimes that when you find out
1 of a persons helpers or animal helpers you can instantly
see that characteristic has stuck out in their personality or physical trait.

Like, I had a friend who told me about how the wolf was one of his main
helpers. I looked at him and instantly seen how he looked like a wolf.
At least had characteristics of a wolf in his face.:smile:

I have to agree with that my spirit Animals are the Wolf and the Crow.i was walking along the road some years ago now and two huge dogs came running towards me Baring their teeth,then i felt My animal walking with me he was a big wolf i could even feel his fur. the two doge ran off wimpering. the owner came out and said im going to report you for having a wolf as a pet.
as soon as the dogs went so did the wolf.



Namaste

Nice telling of your experience.

I wonder if crow people are similar to Raven people?
I do know some Raven people.
