The Totem Of Bear In A Calendar

Bears 2017 Wall Calendar
from: Calendars.com

Native American tribes believe that it is the purpose of the bear to protect the forests. The animal spirit of Bear also is a birth totem to people born between August 22nd to September 22nd which is the time of the Harvest Moon. Mudjekeewis or Bear is also the Spirit Keeper of the West direction of the Medicine Wheel and is also considered to be the “Father of all the Winds” by many Native American traditions. It is only fitting that a calendar celebrating the Bear be a part of this blog.

Across the world in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia there are eight living species of bears. The bear population has steadily declined in the last century. We humans have encroached on their habitats too much and they have been hunted too much. Perhaps if we think about it, if we were to save the sacred bear, we just might also save our wilderness. In this calendar we find the guardian of the West and of nature itself in its own natural environment.
