Native American Woodpecker Mythology

Woodpeckers are considered lucky birds by many Native Americans, particularly in Western tribes, and are associated with friendship and happiness. In some California Indian tribes, woodpeckers are considered medicine birds, and woodpecker scalps and feathers have traditionally been used to adorn ceremonial objects, headdresses, and dance regalia.
