How Can Fetishes Help Us in our daily lives? What does the bear represent? The frog? The wolf? What powers do they contain? Noted Indian trader Kent McManis explains the different types of fetishes with special emphasis on the two major traditional types: the protective/healing group and the hunting group. He also has included dozens of new carvings to update the latest generation of artists coming into the field.
