One of the most prominent wildlife symbols used throughout Native American culture is the snake and our wildlife jewelry celebrates the silver snake with beautiful and trendy pieces.
However, the lore and legends go much deeper.
Snakes in Native American Culture
Many people see snakes as deadly creates which has given them a bad reputation.
Within various Native American tribes, there has been a positive significance. The snake has been a symbol of healing since their skin is constantly shedding, a form of rebirth in the Ojibwa tribe and fertility within the Pueblo tribe.
The Hopi tribe has a story where a winged Snake had the ability to communicate with the Earth element.
The story created an annual dance to honor the snake because it is seen as their “brothers” and are the guardians of springs. The Hopi tribe relies on the snake to bring rain from the underworld.
The presence of a snake can rattle anyone up. Its appearance is not the best but it’s where your instincts would be put to work.
Even though the appearance of a snake can end in a life or death situation, their significance will change your depiction of the creature.
In ancient times, snakes were seen as a symbol of life, change, and longevity but the most important one is personal growth.
Snakes are always shedding and that is a symbolic way to show the transformation in oneself. With that, snakes are a spiritual guide for renewal for evident reasons.
