The Moon Symbol

The Native Moon Symbol or Totem is the protector and guardian of the earth. Its spirit watches over us and can change our moods.

Moon Symbol and First Nations

One of the many Native stories tells that an eclipse is a codfish trying to swallow the Moon. To prevent this, bonfires were made with branches from pine trees and other trees to make a lot of smoke; this would cause the sod fish to cough and spit the Moon out.
