Native American Totem: Wolf

native-american-basket-woman

Wolf as a Native American totem is known as the Teacher. Brother wolf is a pathfinder who howls, sings, and teaches us how to “know”.  He can come to you as a birth totem if you are born during the moon that falls between February 19th through March 20th. Brother Wolf may also choose to be one of your power totems or he may just walk with you awhile as a messenger totem.

Wolf is the greatest teacher in the Tribal Tradition who acts as the pathfinder looking for new ideas and returning to the clan or person to teach and share medicine from what he has learned. Brother wolf has loyalty like Dog and takes one mate for his lifetime. You will find that Brother Wolf has a strong sense of family while also having a strong individualistic presence. These qualities make Wolf much like the human race. We humans also have the ability to be a part of a society and family while still being able to embody our individual dreams and ideas.

In the Great Star Nation, we find Wolf represented by the Dog Star, Sirius. Legend tells that Sirius was the original home of our teachers in the ancient times. Many cultures have also thought of Sirius as the home of the gods. Native Americans adopted the Wolf people as the clan of teachers many centuries ago.

Brother Wolf has very keen senses and has the Moon as it’s power ally. With the psychic energy attributed to the Moon we connect with the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within all of us to come forth and to aid the Earth children in understanding the Great Mystery of Life.

Sometimes, Brother Wolf comes to us to encourage the teacher in us to share our knowledge with others. Other times Wolf will be guiding us to find a lonely place that will allow us to see the teacher within us and to find our true self.
