Bears have been among the first animals to be sacred to Northern American peoples, feared and revered on account of their strength and guile.

The most dangerous animals in North American woods are mother bears protecting their cubs, and they represent thus a symbol of protection over family. Giving them birth during hibernation, bears earned the fame to live in dreams too, and they were considered a powerful symbol of good medicine.
