Native American

This image is from Kiva's American Indian Symbol. This is the sun, made with feathers. This symbol was bestowed on those of honor, and during special occasions. Sometimes it is found in the center of a headdress. The feathers make up the circle. A square in the center usually refers to the number the seasons, and the directions.


  1. Interesting image and list of symbols at the link. I have always been interested in the Western tribes like the Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni.

  2. Very cool, nice explanation.

  3. Thanks for the comment about my diaper cake. I can make any color or theme. I added a picture as well. You have a great weekend also!
