Carvings by Francis Leekya (Deceased) (Not for Sale)

Many Native American tribes use fetishes for luck, power and protection. They use them for healing, hunting, spiritual and ceremonial purposes. The Zuni's are the acknowledged masters at carving fetishes from a wide variety of stones, shells and other materials. Many members of other tribes will travel to Zuni to purchase or trade for their fetishes. For the Zuni's, and others, the fetishes possess the power of the animal that the stone resembles. This belief comes from the Zuni creation story in which the twin sons of the Sun Father struck the animals with lighting to turn them into stone. This was done to protect the people from being harmed by the animals. Deep inside the stone the animals were kept alive in their hearts so they could use their powers to help humans.

Today there are approximately 400 artists who make fetishes in the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico. These fetish carvers each have their own style and favorite animals that they carve. We regularly visit the Zuni Pueblo and meet with the fetish carvers and artists. We carefully select the finest pieces available. Our inventory of fetishes is constantly changing, and those shown on our website are representative of a few of the hundreds we carry in stock. The carvers are able to custom-make special pieces to order. So please feel free to email us or call us with your special requests. We find the Zuni fetish carvers to be very amiable and open to carving just about any animal out of almost any stone.

There is a $6.00 charge for shipping and insurance for any fetish order regardless of quantity.

Our fetish pages are always a work in progress. Due to the turnover in fetishes these pages will always be changing.
