Native American Animal Medicine
Animal medicine is the idea that, when we see animals, they are trying to tell
us something. This is different from the idea of animal totems, which are with an individual
throughout his or her life and represent something intrinsically meaningful to them. Tribes, families
and other groups also have totems. Lessons from animal medicine are immediate concepts that are
