Native American Hawk Mythology

Hawks are often seen as a symbol of power in Native American cultures. Like eagles, they are symbols of courage and strength. In some tribes, such as the Cheyenne, hawks are associated with protection from enemies, and seeing or dreaming about a hawk can be seen as a warning of danger.

Hawks are also used as clan animals in some Native American cultures. Tribes with Hawk Clans include the Chippewa (whose Hawk Clan and its totem are called Gekek), the Hopi (whose Sparrow-Hawk Clan is called Kyelngyam), the Menominee, the Huron and Iroquois tribes, and the Pueblo tribes of New Mexico.
