Throughout history, American Indians have used symbols to represent the deeper meaning they assign to all aspects of life. These images are integral to the way in which Native Americans live and communicate; they are the manifestation of how they understand the world. Symbols are tools not just to convey significance, but to create it too; they are a means for Native Americans to communicate with each other and with the natural world they revere.
Symbols have historically been used to record and share ideas, beliefs, and events. They may function as directions to an ideal hunting spot or explain why the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. Native Americans have created an entire language with symbols. They are a tool for sending messages within and between tribes, expressing ideas, spreading mythology, and describing objects and their spiritual essence.
Aside from being used as a functional language, Native Americans also incorporate symbols throughout their artwork to express the different perspectives on life they maintain, as well as to connect to the world and the people in it on a spiritual level. They’re featured in all types of art—paintings, drawings, tattoos, pottery design, sculpture, totems, and even war paint—to depict meaning, provide inspiration, and tell a story.
The influence of symbols and their meanings on Native American art is incredibly palpable and prominent throughout history. American Indian artists continue to use them to embody their culture and connect to the spirit of the natural world.
Indian spirits are spiritual beings who have been tasked with maintaining this Earth, watching over the affairs of humanity and each has dominion over a portion of nature. They are identified with natural forces as well as with human interests or endeavors. The Indian spirits are mediators between humanity and the Supreme Being.
