North American Porcupine: Pathfinder Pendant
Intuition, Sincerity, Humility, Honor
Porcupines are skilled tree climbers, with long claws, textured palms and quills that facilitate their climb and secure their perch.
A porcupine’s 30,000 quills cannot be fired, but they detach easily when touched.
Quills were traded like currency among early Native American tribes who valued them for their use in elaborate quillwork art.
When their natural diet lacks enough salt, porcupines will eat road salt, tires, and even wooden ax handles.
