If we belong to the Wolf Clan, and they are warriors, the wolf in its natural state protects the pack which is a collection of a mother, cubs, father-Alpha male and Alpha female. Then you would go to aunts and uncles of the cubs.

The aunts and uncles watch over the cubs of their sister, while she goes out to hunt with her wolf husband. The pack is an extended family, which works together to raise the sister's cubs. This may be why many Native tribes, including Cherokee base their ancestry and descent through the maternal line.

In Cherokee culture it is the Edutsi (uncle who teaches and watches over his sister's children and teaches them the ways of Cherokee culture. He never lets them out of his sight. He is a warrior and leader, and afraid of no one. Warriors know what is right from wrong. They stand for their clan, no matter what.

Teaching, A Guide to the Sacred Wolves have been long regarded by Native Americans as teachers or pathfinders. Wolves are fiercely loyal to their mates, and have a strong sense of family while maintaining individualism. In the stars, Wolf is represented by the Dog, Sirius, thought by many aboriginal tribes to be the home of the "Ancients." It seems to be through this connection that Wolf has come to be associated with ancient teachings.

Wolves are probably the most misunderstood of the wild animals. Tales of cold bloodlessness abound, in spite of the their friendly, social and intelligent traits. They are truly free spirits even though their packs are highly organized. They seem to go out of their way to avoid a fight. One is rarely necessary when a shift in posture, a growl, or a glance gets the point across quite readily.

Traditionally, someone with Wolf Medicine has a strong sense of self, and communicates well through subtle changes in voice inflection and body movements. They often find new solutions to problems while providing stability and support that one normally associates with a family structure.

    The wolf is peaceful animals. They only hunt for food. The stay clear of the white man for they feel their evil. They fight only when they are cornered and if they feel that their young is in danger. Wolves deserve to be respected for the kind beautiful spirit they posses they are not normally killers of humans, they just want to be left to live the was the Great Spirit intended; They choose to live in peace with their packs.

    Always say, you can throw me to the wolves and I will come back leading the pack because they come when I call.

  11. I am lucky enough to have not just one spirit dream wolf but a whole pack which came to me when I lost my daddy in June. So I am always surrounded by their love and strength, even before the pack came my wolf would make sure I was going on the right path. Wolves have always been my favorite animal and I've always had dreams about them. I would love to see one up close and personal and see if there is that connection I feel with the wolves in my dream world. I am a Wicca Witch and I also follow Native American beliefs as well. I was born to dance to my own drum and walk my own path
