Zuni Fetishes are an animal, bird or figure hand carved from stone, shell, antler, wood or other natural materials. Zuni Fetishes were first carved as "hunting" fetishes. When taken on a hunting expedition they would ensure a plentiful and successful hunt. Each fetish is believed to have a spirit within. If treated and taken care of properly Zuni fetishes will help guide you on the right path of life. When you purchase or are given a Zuni fetish it is your responsibility to care for and treat it with the proper respect it deserves.
