Native American peoples have used fetishes throughout recorded history.  Fetish carvings are believed to hold magical powers and protect the owner or craftsmen from various problems of mind or body. In Traditional Zuni ceremony, fetishes must be taken care of and are given offerings of cornmeal and kept in special turquoise encrusted fetish pots or pouches. It is also believed that the care a Native American Fetish receives is directly proportional to the protection it will provide. The fetish bear is associated with great strength, power, healing and self-knowledge. He is the great protector, the "sacred bear." He is a spiritual guide and also carries within him supernatural powers. The bear is a powerful healing fetish.
