Native American Robin Mythology

Robins are often portrayed as industrious, “can-do” birds, who are frequently rewarded for their work ethic. In some tribes, the bright red color of a robin’s breast is associated with fire, and robins feature in legends as either guardian or thief of fire. In other legends, the caring parental behavior of robins is noted, and in some tribes it is considered good luck for a pregnant woman to see robins feeding their young. In the Blackfoot tribe, robins are a symbol of peace and the presence of robins was said to be a sign that a camp or village would be safe from attack.
