For centuries, Native American Zuni tribes have crafted intricate carvings of animals using organic materials such as bone, stone, clay, shells, wood, and whatever else is available. These carvings - called fetishes - are a wonder to behold, and they carry a rich and magical tradition. Jewelry is another extremely important American Indian cultural staple, so it's not surprising that fetish jewelry became so prevalent. Our genuine Zuni fetish necklaces are the perfect addition to any fine or casual jewelry collection.

Fetishes throughout History
Fetishes are much more than toys or fashion accessories to the Native Americans. Each animal has its own personality and significance that is applied to many aspects of life. For instance, it was common for hunters to perform rituals with eagle, wolf, bear, and other prey fetishes before leaving on a journey. They would place the fetish in a buckskin bag around their neck so it would remain close to the heart to aid the hunter in his chase. The Zunis revered these fetishes so highly that they were periodically "fed" a meal of ground turquoise and cornmeal. They were also carefully stored in clay pots for protection.
