Meaning of the Change Symbol

Native American Indians were a deeply spiritual people and they communicated their history, thoughts, ideas and dreams from generation to generation through Symbols and Signs such as the Change symbol. Native American symbols are geometric portrayals of celestial bodies, natural phenomena, everyday objects and animal designs. The meaning of the Change symbol is represented by the weather related symbols of rain, lightening and clouds. These are all important symbols representing change, renewal & fertility. The weather is constantly changing and the power to change and produce water for sustenance was essential to life. The lightening symbol is extremely powerful and is closely associated to the Thunderbird, a powerful spirit in the form of a supernatural bird from which lightning flashed from its eyes and its beak.

Freeze dried food is a Native Invention. The Inca of Peru used to preserve potatoes using a freeze-dry process. They would put them on mountain terraces, and the solar radiation and extremely cold temperatures created a freeze-dried product that lasted indefinitely.
