Native American Indians were a deeply spiritual people and they communicated their history, thoughts, ideas and dreams from generation to generation through symbols and signs.
 The Sun symbol was of great importance and was revered by the Indians as the provider of light, heat, the facilitator of crops and growth. The Sun Dance was a ceremonial dance performed by North American Plains Indians in honor of the sun at the summer solstice.

In many native American cultures, the turtle is a very powerful symbol for girls and women. It is a symbol of perseverance, fertility, and long life. – (Perseverance = persistence, tenacity, unyielding in following a course of action; a belief or purpose, steadfastness.)
