The Serpent In American Indian Traditions
In the traditions of many American Indian tribes, the Great Serpent was a powerful spirit. People could call upon the Great Serpent for the power to cure-illnesses or to be successful in hunting animals. The Great Serpent offered its power in the form of copper and shells, which were thought to be its scales or horns.
