The Native American zodiac signs are wholly unique, and you’ll not find these totemic birth animals anywhere else but here.
Find your animal sign and follow the link to find out what it means.Goose http://bit.ly/PlNjMJOtter http://bit.ly/XQOPbUWolf http://bit.ly/PiLeRPFalcon http://bit.ly/Rms6ieBeaver http://bit.ly/T1dCpwDeer http://bit.ly/RnsnkOWoodpecker http://bit.ly/PkI8NaSalmon http://bit.ly/RpIu1mBear http://bit.ly/XYaLltRaven http://bit.ly/RqhP4tSerpent http://bit.ly/PlvLjTOwl http://bit.ly/RqWDv8

It’s bad enough seeing non-natives posting this stuff…why is this being given ‘legitimacy’ at all?  Whose specific traditions are these from?  There is no ‘native american culture’ and these certainly don’t apply to my traditions.  We’re battling some very severe ignorance about the diversity of our cultures, and this kind of pan-Indian bullshit doesn’t help.
These link to some sort of crap Native American Encylopedia, and from my tone I think it’s clear what I think of the kind of ‘facts’ presented there.
