Canadian Native Thunderbird Earrings


Native American jewelry earrings handcrafted in West Coast Native jewelry Thunderbird design. The Thunderbird is a mythological creature that symbolizes power, protection and strength. Long ago the Native people pleaded to the Thunderbird for help, but in return requested that from then on he be only be depicted at the top of a totem pole with his wings stretched out. That is why on many Northwest Coast totem poles, the Thunderbird is carved on top of the pole.
