Wolves, coyotes and foxes all look the same in the distance. In Zuni there is a word that translates into "bushytail" in English. This bushytail is a fox. Foxes are playful, clever, quick, and protective of their young. They also mate for life.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
