American Indians have used fetishes throughout history.Carved fetishes are believed to hold magical powers and protect the owner or craftsmen from various problems of mind or body. They are given offerings of cornmeal and kept in a pouch or pot for safe keeping. We carry ours in our purses or pockets when needing to call on the medicine of a particular animal. All hand carved in New Mexico on the Zuni Pueblo and artists are paid a living wage. Please specify your animal choice when ordering or allow us to send you a surprise for your own spirit medicine from the cosmos.
