What is the meaning of "buffalo totem"?
In the Native American tradition an animal totem is a spirit that will come to you to teach you lessons that you need. Some of these totems are with you from birth and will teach you throughout your lifetime. Other animal spirits or totems come as messengers and will stay with you until you have grasped the teaching they have for you.
The medicine of buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. It is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation. It is to give praise for the richness of life to be shared with all races, creatures, all nations, and all life; meeting the needs of others, and praying for the good of all things in harmony, and accepting the Great Mystery as a part of that harmony. Buffalo medicine teaches us that we achieve nothing without the aid of the Great Spirit and that we must be humble enough to ask for that assistance and be grateful for what we receive.
The pendant portion of the necklace measures 2"x3" and the chain is adjustable between 16" and 18".
