Pigeon Totem


The instinctual "homing instinct" of the pigeon makes it the carrier of messages from home. Pigeons in general are associated with the home and family matters. As a totem the pigeon teaches us to return to our roots and explore our heritage. Seeing a pigeon can be a message to check in with family members to see if all is well. Pigeon also serves as a reminder that we come from a clan and are not alone. The pigeon thinks of the home as a safe haven.
