WOLF ROBE - Native American legend refers to animals as our teachers. It was wise for man to pay attention and learn from them. These spirits can still talk to us if we would but learn how toWolf Robe listen. The Wolf was a powerful teacher, admired by early Native Americans for its intelligence, strength, skills, and endurance. Wolves taught them to be successful hunters through the value of cooperation, quiet movement, and careful observation. Capable of great tenderness, the Wolf taught fidelity to family. And it represented wisdom because the Wolf only hunted what it needed to survive, leaving nature's balance intact.
     "In ancient times, the Wolf was our companion," says Brandenburg, who has spent many years studying and photographing the Wolf. "It certainly was our teacher, reminding us that two species sharing similar ecological niches might also share similar fates."

TIPI ROBE - An old story tells that, one day, a long time ago, a Blackfoot sat in the shade of a cottonwood tree. From theTipi Robe ground he picked up one of the tree's leaves, twisted it between his fingers, and behold, the idea for a new dwelling, the tipi, was born.

SWALLOWTAIL ROBE - A medicine man went out in the early dawn. The sky was blue, the sun shone brightly. Birds of all kinds Swallowtail Robesang out their joy as the medicine man stood listening. Suddenly he heard a song that rose higher and clearer than all the rest. He moved closer to the sound so that he might see what manner of bird could send such happy notes farther than all the others. As he came near he beheld a tiny black bird with open bill. It was the swallow, one of the smallest and least powerful of all birds, that seemed the most glad to pour out in ringing melody to the rising sun its delight in life. The medicine man took this as a teaching for his people. "Everyone can be happy," he thought. "Even the most insignificant among us can have his song of thanks."

NORTHERN LIGHTS ROBE - To the Indians who inhabited the northern woodlands all natural phenomena had a message to impart from the Great Northern Lights RobeSpirit. Appearing in the sky above them was one of the most spectacular and mysterious ~ the aurora borealis, or, Northern Lights. Occurring most frequently around the equinoxes, the lights sometimes appear as shimmering veils that change shape and color from one moment to the next. At other times, rays of light shoot and swirl so wildly one can almost imagine hearing music coming from the sky. It is not surprising that the Woodlands Indians believed the Northern Lights were their Grandfathers dancing to show them there is another place to go.

WISDOM ROBE - In the land of the Ojibwe, the eagle feather is a powerful possession. Those who are lucky enough to obtain one are either very wise or very brave. There is a Wisdom Robestory about a man who spent his whole adult life in search of the wisdom that comes with the eagle feather. Every day he searched and prayed to be given this magical gift, ignoring even his family and closest friends. Then one day he could stand it no more, and he said to the Creator. "I have given up everything in search of my eagle feather and my life is passing me by. I will now stop and spend the rest of my life helping others."
