The Zuni have lived in the southwest for thousands of years; home is now in New Mexico. They consider the Tsegi/Lenaytupqa Canyon region an essential part of their traditions. It is known as the "northern canyons," from which several of their clans originated. The Zuni traveled through this area on their way to Grand Canyon to mine salt. Betatakin/Talastima is celebrated in Zuni songs, traditions, and lives.

Fetishes are made in all sizes, colors,  and shapes.
