Thank you for your symbol. We have thought a lot about your illustration
and have come to these conclusions...
We think the + shape in the middle represents more people combining
into your culture each day. We also think the colours show vegetation,
you need (and have), sky to grow crops (blue), and the bright sun (yellow),
and also the rich soil (brown). The four large people around the outside
show your past group leaders in your old tribes and in the their hands
show what they do (hunting and spiritualism).
Two things we noticed first were the blue faces and the person stretched
out. We think they both mean long life. The costumes could
possible represent your old cultures traditional outfits.
Thank you so much for the symbol. We cant wait to hear your responses.
the picture you will see Talking God on the top of the picture. Talking
god is the elder of the gods and he has a medicine pouch in the shape
of a weasel.
On the left and right of the picture there are two humpback guardians,
their humps are believed to be backpacks. The two humpback guardians were
seed gathers and bearers and they carry tobacco pouches. On the bottom
is Calling God and he is associated with farming and fertility.
The gods carry prayer sticks except for Talking God because he is carrying
his medicine pouch. Around the center going in clockwise direction there
are the four sacred plants which are corn, beans, squash, and tobacco.
