Santa Fe insider information

What's your fetish? You'll see a lot of animal figures floating around Santa Fe stores. These little carvings are called a fetish and according to belief, the owner of that fetish will possess the same powers of the animal. For example, a person might carry a bear for strength or an eagle for awareness. Most stores will have a list of what the animals symbolize, so choose your fetish and wear it well.
