Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
Koyongwùuti or hen turkey gathers berries among spiral germination symbols as rain clouds gather on the horizon. The diamond upon her represents the heart with repeating squares symbolizing kennels of corn, her favorite food, and blessings for corn plants as Koyongwùuti is a spirit of the earth. Turkeys have been an important part of native culture in the Southwest for the last two millennia. Their feathers are often used in ceremonies and prayer elements
