The wolf is one of the seven clan of the Cherokee people. This is the teaching clan and assigned to hold the spiritual and cultural form for the people of the clan, tribe, and earth inhabitants.
The wolf represents the earth mother. The wolf lives close to the earth mother and in alignment to her rhythms and vibrations. The wolf reads the wilderness and understands its place in it and does what needs to be done not only for its survival but the survival of its family, clan and tribe.
The wolf is a pack animal and mates for life if possible. It is driven by keen survival skills and is a powerful provider for the family. Each member has a gift and responsibility to the whole and is duly honored and respected for these gifts.
Leadership is servant oriented and respected by all if enacted properly. The leader is responsible for the welfare, safety and purpose of the pack.
Wolves roam far to obtain food for the pack. Wolves need space to survive in the wild. Wolves work hard to eat and to feed their pack. There cannot be slackers in the pack – everyone knows the work to be done and does it.
Have we mentioned that play is integral to the healthy, thriving wolf pack? A sense of egoless humor and spirit of fun are critical to the longevity & cohesiveness of the group.
