The Majestic wolf.. Wolves are the most misunderstood of the wild animals. Although, there are many stories (some of them wild wives tales) there have never been any confirmed attacks and killings of humans by healthy wolves. Wolves are the epitome of the wild spirit. The wolf is a true spirit of the free and unspoiled wilderness.
There are several types or species of wolves.. The Red Wolf is the smallest (and it may also be extinct in the wild), The Mexican Wolf, The Arctic Wolf, and the gray Timber Wolf..The gray Wolf is not always gray, it may be black, gray, brown, white, or various combinations...
The feathers that Native Americans (Indians) wear in their hair were very important to them. Most feathers were more than just decoration. The feathers siginified some great honor such as being the chief of a tribe, or a hero in battle. And some denote rank in a tribal or clan's society.
There are 59 species of eagles, and they are often divided into one of four categories. (1.) Fish and Sea Eagles ( those who live primarily upon a diet from the sea or rivers) (2.) Snake Eagles (often have crests upon their heads) (3.) Harpy or Giant Forested Eagles (are not found on this continent but are the largest member of the Eagle family) and (4.) Booted Eagles..(the Golden Eagle is a member of this family)
There is a great variety within thes four groups. When it comes to coloring, and feather patterns, every eagle is unique and beautiful in it's own way. The bald Eagle is a part of the first category of Eagles. (Water and Fish)
The feathers of Eagles are sacred to Native Americans. The Bald Eagle and the Golden Eagle are the most important to those upon this continent. The Bald Eagle is Larger that the Golden Eagle. The Bald Eagle is a symbol of the feminine while the gold is a symbol of the masculine. Both of these Eagles have come to symbolize heroic nobility and Divine spirit.
The American Buffalo is actually a Bison. Buffalo is a name that applies to the animals of Asia and Africa. To the Plains Indians the Bison is a symbol of sacred life and abundance. The Bison is a large animal and they can weigh up to a ton and a half. It has a massive head, humped shoulders, and some say an almost exaggerated appearance because of it's shaggy fur. The Bison is very unpredictable. And it is a very dangerous animal.. When the Native Americans killed the Bison they used every part of the animal that they had killed... The meat was their food.. It was dried and stored. The skins were used for their clothing and tepees. The hair was used to line saddle bags, make pillows and put into sleeping pads.. The sinews became their bow strings. From the hooves the Native People made glue. And in the stomaches and bladders the Native people carried water. And from the bones jewlery and pipes were made.. And the heads of the Bison were painted and placed facing the east. The Bison use their massive heads to clear patches of snow in the winter time so that it can feed upon the grasses beneath the snow.. The Bison will on occasion use it's head or horns to push or bowl things out of it's way. The Bison make several different sounds but the most common is the snort..
The bear is a powerful symbol in the Native American culture. The bear is also an image in myth and lore. The bear is the largest of carinvores. But the bear can also be considered omnivorous, eating both plants, fruits, fish, and meats. The bear actually eats less meat than the smaller carnivores such as the fox. All bears are astonishingly swift. The Black bear, and the Grizzly bear can run up to speeds of 35 to 40 MPH or 60 to 65 KPH for short distances. All bears including the Polar bear can climb.. Only the size of the tree will discourage climbing. Bears in the wintertime live off their excess stored up body fat, their body temperature drops about 12 to 14 degrees, their kidneys shut down completely, and their breathing rate can be cut down by as much as half.. The depth of sleep depends on the amount of stored body fat.. Although distantly related to the dog, the bear is closer related to the raccoon.. There is a variety of bears. The most common bear is the Black bear. This is kind of a misnomer, as not all Black bears are black. They can be brown, cinnamon, and various other combinations. The very largest of the bears is the the Alaskan Brown bear. It is a relative of the Grizzly bear, the Brown bear is relatively solitary. The Grizzly is well known for it's strength and ferocity.. Even though the Grizzly can be quite fierce, it is not naturally aggressive. By far the Most outstanding hunter is the Polar bear. This white bear has NO fear.. it is the most carnivorous and the most aggressive of all the bear species. It feeds greatly on seals and fish.
The Wolf is currently being re-introduced into some areas in the United States... Probably the biggest misconception of wolves is about their size..They are not nearly as large as most people imagine.. Their thick fur gives the appearance of a greater size, but they are usually no taller than a good sized German-Shepherd. Every member of the wolf pack knows its place in the hierarchial structure of that wolf pack.. There is the ALPHA male and the ALPHA female. The ALPHA male and ALPHA female often mate for life.. Wolves become sexually mature by the age of 22 to 24 months. The ritualistic behaviors that establish the wolf ranks are part of it's magic.. Wolf packs are not entirely autocratic - under the supreme rule of the ALPHA member... Neither are they democratic.. There are times when both occur, and it is the flexibility which adds to the success of the wolf government.
