Turtle symbolism

The turtle has a lot of significance in Native American cultures. For them it represents strength and fertility. Similarly, they believe that it has the power of defying death. Some consider the American continent as being the Turtle Island, yet to be discovered. – True or not, the Amerindians and their kin look at this animal with a lot of consideration.

There are several ways the American aboriginals interpret this symbol. But for all of them the turtle is a sacred animal. They depict it in beautiful ornaments that give them the comfort of being protected.

Canadian’s First Nations Fashion Art

The picture represents a handmade bead artwork of a native American turtle hair ornament. A young native Canadian woman was proudly wearing it at the Pow-Wow festival in Ottawa. She graciously allowed me to take a picture of it, so here it is, for you to see and admire as well. I still cannot stop looking at this needle artwork of extreme beauty, and finesse… And what a wonderful combination of colors too! Obviously it took the artist some advanced skills to do this fashion ornament. In addition, she was standing under a blue tent that increased the color contrast with her outfit. From a side the light was magically falling right on this stunning piece of art, making the beads shining. I was a lucky photographer 🙂

There were some beautiful costumes at the festival, all native North American fashion design. Here is another traditional aboriginal Canadian hair ornament:
