Native American Indians were a deeply spiritual people and they communicated their history, thoughts, ideas and dreams from generation to generation through various symbols. Native American symbols are geometric portrayals of celestial bodies, natural phenomena, animal designs and representations of actual events. The White Soldiers symbol, showing figures wearing hats, distinguished them from Native Indians. The following picture shows a a drawing made in 1875 by two Indian guides on a piece of birch bark which clearly shows the White Soldiers symbol. The drawing illustrates an over night stop and was placed upon an upright pole. Its purpose was to inform fellow Indians that a party of 14 white men and 2 Indians had encamped at the place. The slant of the Birch-bark pole showed the direction of the proposed march, and three notches in the wood of the pole showed that it was to be a three-day expedition

The meanings of the other symbols are as follows:
The White Soldiers symbol is in a fact a pictogram. A pictogram, also called a pictograph, conveys a story and meaning through pictures that signify and resemble the shapes of physical objects or people. An Ideagram is another form of pictogram which conveys complex ideas, feelings and emotions. A pictogram, such as the one recognised as a White Soldiers symbol, is a therefore a form of writing which uses representational, pictorial drawings to tell a story.
