Zuni Society recognizes six cardinal directions. Each direction is represented by a fetish of a particular color. The fetish is the guardian of its regions and is the master of the medicine powers for that realm. Each animal has a different power and the choice of animal depends on the purpose for which the fetish is intended. We are listing below the Healing Fetish Directional Set. The set represents the six animals the Zuni revere and the directions they represent, the color of the stone that the Zuni use to depict the directional animal and finally the animal's medicine power. Some artists make 6 Directional Sets - so a set of the six animals listed above. Other artists make a 6 Directional figure - so one carving with all the heads peaking out of the same stone - the eagle is usually carved at the top and the mole oftentimes placed on the bottom.
North - Mountain Lion (yellow) A lion is a symbol of strength and courage but also of leadership and wisdom with unique heightened powers of sight and smell. The lion is a role model of authority and controlled response - he is the master hunter, revered for intelligence, prowess and strength of will.
West - Bear (blue) The Zuni believe the bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability & courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual and physical realm.
South - Badger (red) Badger medicine bolsters defenses; most especially one's own self preservation skills by focusing/guiding the spirit to be more tenacious and grounded when working towards a goal.
East - Wolf (white) Wolf medicine reminds us to share our knowledge for the benefit of all - to be teachers and pathfinders and to enjoy the journey that life presents. Wolf also teaches everyone about the importance of loyalty.
Upper/Zenith Region - Eagle (multiple colors) The eagle represents conscious enlightenment and clarity. The Zuni believe the creator made the eagle to be a teacher for mankind - and due to their ability to fly the highest; they can send our prayers to the great divine.
Lower/Nadir Region - Mole (black) Moles share a connection with the energies of the earth, have knowledge of herbs, roots, minerals, seeds and rivers, are sensitive to touch and vibration and remind us all to turn inwards - allowing for introspection and awareness of the subtle energies and influences that shape our lives.
