ABOUT OUR BEAR CLAW!
Native Americans use symbols & designs to represent specific ideas or cultural expressions. The bear is a powerful guardian; physical strength & leadership! The bear symbolizes sweetness of life and introspection. The bear claw was used to summon the power of the animal. The bear tracks can signify strength and well being, leadership and authority.
