Dragonflies have different, yet similar meanings throughout Native America. In Zuni, they are messengers between this world and the next and are related to the coming rains and corn. In other tribes they are strong protectors, as dragonflies are one of the very few creatures that can fight while flying backwards. They are known to watch our backs and offer protection. Their symbol is a vertical line with two horizontal bars, and can be seen on war shirts, shields and painted on horses going into battle.
