The Swastika Symbol

Native American Indians were a deeply spiritual people and they communicated their history, thoughts, ideas and dreams from generation to generation through Symbols and Signs such as the Swastika symbol. The origin of the Swastika symbol derives from the ancient Mississippian culture of the Mound Builders of North America and were major elements in the Southeastern Ceremonial Complex of American prehistory (S.E.C.C.). Some of the Native Indian tribes still retain some elements of the Mississippi culture and the symbolism of the broken cross symbol – that is commonly referred to as a Swastika.

The Origin of the word Swastika

The word ‘swastika’ derives from an Asian Indian Sanskrit word, in which the meaning of the swastika stands for universal welfare. “Swasti” means well-being of one and all and “ka” means symbol. The swastika is one of the most ancient of all symbols and used as a symbol for peace, life and good luck. It represented the revolving sun, fire or life.

Swastika symbolism is destroyed

The ancient Swastika was adopted as a symbol of the Nazi Party of Germany in 1920 who used it as a symbol of the Aryan race. The events leading to WW2 destroyed the original meaning of the swastika and completely reversed its original meaning from peace and life to war and death. The true meaning of the swastika and its symbolism has probably been destroyed forever but the symbol belonged to ancient cultures long before the terrible events of the 20th century.
