1888 Nate's Take: Coyote’s Hide their intellect and sense of playfulness as to not give away their clever plans...succeed in silence.
Coyotes in Native American folklore often represent hidden wisdom and a strong sense of humor!
~Claws, Teeth, Bones~
The claws, teeth, and bones of wild animals have historically been worn as symbols of prowess & social standing. Deep admiration was given to those who could kill the most fearsome of beasts. It's no longer a necessity for most of us to hunt for our survival, so the wearing of claws, teeth, & bones has become symbolic of overcoming great obstacles despite our fears & connecting with our inner animal as we charge forth the evolution of the spirit.
~Keys / Locks~
Historically, Keys have been used for everything from winding pocket watches to switching on the first two-way radios! The most common symbolic meaning used for the key is its power to unlock the door to the heart, opportunity or adventure. Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, remind us that the key to life is making sure you have the right tools before approaching opportunity.
