Panther Clan

  • $34.00

Among some eastern tribes like the Seminoles and Shawnees, panthers were considered noble animals with powerful hunting medicine. The Panther is one of their major clan animals. In the legends of these tribes, Panther sometimes features as a leader or warrior of the animal people. And among the Pueblo tribes, Mountain Lion is believed to have powerful hunting medicine and considered one of the six directional guardians, representing the north and the color yellow. Several Pueblos had Cougar Societies, and Zuni hunters kept stone panther fetishes for protection, ascribing to them both healing and hunting powers. In South America, panthers were associated with wealth and the earth by the Quechua (Incan) people, and many Quechuas still consider it lucky to catch sight of a panther today. 

Tribes with Panther Clans include the Creek (whose Tiger or Panther Clan is named Katsalgi or Kaccvlke,) the Chippewa (whose Panther Clan and its totem are called Misibizhiw,) the Chickasaw, the Caddo, the Osage, the Shawnee, and the Pueblo tribes of New Mexico.
