What does the black crow symbolize to native Americans?
I am Native American. My tribes are Ottowa and Ojebue. I can tell you that to my tribes, the crow symbolizes nothing. We do use the feathers for crafts, costumes, and fans. The crow is like any other common bird. To another tribe however, the Crow may be a "Totem" or "worshiped being". I do know that in some cultures the crow either "eats" the soul of a dead being or is a warning of something deadly about to happen. I wish you luck on your search for the crow. Signed Highstar
