The Back Story:

Indian Sun Symbol

The Sun symbol is of great importance to all Native American Indian tribes and is depicted in a variety of ways. The Abenaki Tribe Sun Myth deity is ‘Kisosen’ meaning “Sun-Bringer” symbolizing an eagle whose wings opened to create the day and closed to create the night.

In Lakota Sioux mythology, a sun deity called “Wi” is one of the supreme gods and is associated with the American Bison.

The sun was greatly revered by the Indians as the provider of light, heat, the facilitator of crops and represented growth throughtout their culture.
