Wolves are intelligent, resourceful creatures that live in their own communities called packs. They are the guardians of the East which is associated with new beginnings. They have excellent communication skills and are protective of one another. The leaders of their community are called “alpha” and are usually males and females, although there are known to be alphas that are only females (yay to the matriarchy!). The alphas are the only wolves in the pack who breed, and they also eat first. They are the strongest and most intelligent wolves of the group.
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.
