Native shields were very important to Native Americans because they were strong symbols of good medicine. Representing both physical protection and also spiritual protection, shields displayed the cultural identity of the Native American that used them. Much like a family crest in Europe, Native American shields linked families through common symbols as well as identifying the owner.

Indian shields are perfect wall ornaments and one-of-a-kind treasures made by hand that make great gifts. Skillfully, hand painted on the front with American Indian symbols, or covered with exotic pheasant feathers, American Indian shields are also often decorated with wooden beads, prayer feathers and antler medallions or conchos and real deer skin leather.
