Turkey Totem

Turkey totem represents a time of harvest and blessings.

Turkey is quite a bit like buffalo. very sacred. it is one that gives unconditionally. If you follow a wild turkey and watch you will find other foods to eat. the feathers have been used to make caps for ceremony as well as to keep rain off. almost every part of the turkey can be used for one thing or another and of course the bird is also a food source.

It teaches strength through being in the flock and allowing others to assist you in not only finding food but raising your young and being a part of the whole.... source: Whitehorse Woman
