Top 10 des divinités amérindiennes

The Christianization of the territory of Amerindian tribes seems to have no effect on their cultures. They still accept the Christian God as one of the Inuit spirits. For the tribes in North America, it was a Supreme Being who created this world, but he delegated his powers to other beings and elements. In this culture, the Earth, Sky, Sun, Moon and other natural elements such as rain, wind and lightning are also considered divinities. The Native American population also believes in a universal dualism which opposes forces, gods and sexes. It can evoke figures of the civilizing hero who guides humanity and figures of the deceptor on whom fantasies are projected and on whom taboos are evacuated. To enter into a relationship with the gods, one calls upon “shamans” while performing ceremonial rites such as the Plains peace pipe.

Of the cultures that were born in Mesoamerica, all that remains are lapidary vestiges and a few pictograms that we do not always understand. In all cases, these elements such as the feathered serpent, the water goddess or the Mayan god of fire refer to myths and cults. It should also be noted that in this Mesoamerican culture, there are on the one hand the beneficent gods like the Aztec god of rain and on the other hand, the evil deities like the storm .

In the mythologies of South America, we have more or less local beliefs. However, regardless of the location, we have a Creator God, but his name and his representation are varied. As in the tribes in North America, we also have other deities such as the Kokopelli god, the opposition between the divine forces, the seasons and the sexes. Among the best-known representations, we have the sun, the moon, the Jaguar or the puma.

Here are the signs of the Native American zodiac and their meaning

In Native American culture, there are several emblematic animals which each have a symbolic representation. They are the ones who make up their zodiac. Every person has an animal associated with them at birth. Depending on the sign, some go so far as to choose a Native American first name.

The otter


If you were born between January 20 and February 18, your totem animal is the otter. This animal is not common, because it has a boundless imagination and remarkable intelligence. It presents “unconventional” methods that are not always accepted by the outside world, but these are still effective. This is its main advantage. The person born under this sign is very attentive, but has some flaws. She can be rebellious, isolated, direct and obscene.

The Wolf

The wolf is the animal associated with those who have a date of birth between February 19 and March 20. This animal is the lover of the zodiac and it is not the most understanding of animals. He understands that every being needs love and he can perfectly meet this expectation. He still claims his freedom, hence the image of the “lone” wolf. He can then be both affectionate, generous and gentle and recalcitrant, obsessive and vindictive.

The Falcon

The period from March 21 to April 19 is associated with the Falcon in the Native American zodiac. This animal is distinguished by its natural leader side. The person born under this sign is given the title of "guide", because he can bring his point of view to you in an objective manner. He is also someone who does not waste his time and is always persistent. He reacts when necessary with a note of "tolerable" arrogance and he doesn't really know patience.

The Beaver


The beaver is the animal of the Native American zodiac from the period from April 20 to May 20. He lives his life according to his motto “take charge, adapt and surpass yourself”. When he carries out a task, he applies himself and does not give up until he reaches the end. Cunning is, for him, a strength, and he uses it. If you have a beaver in front of you, you have to think twice before confronting it: it arranges itself so that it can lead the dance in every situation. We associate certain faults with the beaver such as possessiveness, arrogance, nervousness and demandingness.

The Deer

In this Native American zodiac, the deer is its muse and it is associated with people who were born from May 21 to June 20. These people are a source of inspiration for those around them and they bring their sharp mind to certain situations. The deer has a sense of humor and has no difficulty communicating with others. We can even say sometimes that his involvement is disturbing. Besides his natural intelligence, he can sometimes be selfish, impatient and can show another side with his bad mood.

The Green Peak


In the Native American zodiac, people with a birthdate between June 21 and July 21 are Green Woodpeckers. This animal is very attentive and is always there for its loved ones to support them. Naturally caring, romantic and devoted, the “green woodpecker” person can be possessive, jealous, resentful and even angry. In everyday life, she is thrifty, resourceful and organization is her strong point.



If you were born between July 22 and August 21, you are a salmon in this zodiac. At a party, Salmon is the type of person who is enthusiastic, motivated and displays crazy ideas. Without being a natural leader, he still manages to impose ideas that always work. With all this sociability, Salmon can sometimes be selfish, vulgar and may not even tolerate others. Towards those around him, he is generous and displays incomparable stability.

The Bear


The date of birth falling between August 22 and September 21 is associated with the bear. The main characters of this animal are pragmatism, generosity and balance. In a complex situation, the person born under this sign tends to temper and help. Even though he can be indispensable, he can appear shy and he is also very modest. Patience is something he knows well. When the bear is alone, it can be skeptical, lazy, introverted and lonely.

The Raven


The Raven is the Native American zodiac sign assigned to people born between September 22 and October 22. He is a charming animal and a born entrepreneur. This is the type of person you should turn to when you need ideas and opinions. He will be able to present them in a diplomatic and idealistic way. Towards those around him and those close to him, he can be sociable, even romantic. When he embarks on a personal project, he is very demanding.

The Serpent

Between October 23 and November 22, the Native American zodiac animal is the snake. In spirituality, it is not a simple animal, it is a natural element. Most shamans are born under this sign, which explains their natural “spiritual leader” side. “Snakes” also excel in the medical field. They are very attentive people and they will never expose their lives to you. They have a mysterious and sometimes frightening side. When you know this type of person well, you can see their sensitive and caring side. The snake is not an animal that tolerates solitude. In this situation, he can quickly become discouraged, become violent and is more prone to abnormal mood swings.

The Owl

The owl is the sign worn by people born between November 23 and December 21. Because of his friendliness and naturalness, he’s the kind of friend we all want to have. Very easy-going, the owl is an animal that adapts to all situations and can even be adventurous. His reckless, careless and thoughtless character is not favorable to him in the exercise of a profession which requires rigor. Among his qualities, we have sensitivity, listening and enthusiasm and in the list of his faults, we have excessiveness.

The Goose


A date of birth falling between December 22 and January 19 belongs to the sign of the goose. People under this sign are perseverant, tenacious and ambitious, which explains their success in projects. Moreover, for them, success is of great importance and they can go for it without the approval of others. The goose excels in any activity, as long as it has the support of its entourage and loved ones. Passionate, the goose can very quickly become obsessed.

Native American Shamanism

The shamanism, the spirituality older, is a system of magical or spiritual practices of which they make the exclusive “religion”. It brings together the elements and the teaching is given by the spirits. In Native American culture, we always have shamanism. The shaman is considered the messenger of the elders, because he ensures the connection with the world of Spirits, beyond. We can say that he is at the same time a medium, a magnetizer and a scholar. In Native American culture, he may be a village doctor, priest, psychologist, or counselor. He is endowed with strength of character and extreme sensitivity.
