So my friend went to Arizona two years ago and he bought some Native American fetishes(little carvings of animals). He bought a coyote for himself which is suppose to be a trickster. In the hotel room he accidently knocked it off the dresser during the night, they tore the room apart to find it the next morning to no avail. A few days ago he was cleaning his room and on a pile of old toys in his closet is was just sitting there. He said that it looked like it was placed there.

That's quite strange. But if the wolf is a trickester, then it just said "Gotcha, sucka". Well, maybe not 'sucka', but if I were a wolf, I'd say 'sucka'.

lol ^^^

That is odd..definately. Perhaps you just forget you placed it there? It happens a lot..I often do that alot..I'll lose something then I'll find it in a completely different spot later..and it has a totally 'Earthly' explanation for it. Seems odd, but has this happened before?

My grandfather is a sioux and he would say...

You cant lose a fetishes only they choose to lose you..

As old tales would say, That a Fetishes stays with you as long as its needed and when its job is done it will get lost and fall in to the hands of someone else who needs it.

Sometimes I will look all over the house for a lighter that I know I just had. After I give up, I usually find it in my hand. Man I'm stupid! It could be the same type of forgetting that happened to your friend.

Dude, don't post a thread called 'fetishes' and then start talking about some little doll carved by indians. Call the thread 'little dolls carved by indians'. This advertising was misleading and false, and I'm very dissapointed!

Geez! Get me all worked up, will ya?

OK everyone lets keep this on Topic!!

fetishes = little animal dolls! or little pots!!!

Fetishes in Native American culture are the representations of animal (and other) spirits, made into charms and such like to be worn by the person in order to invoke the wisdom and protection of that or those particular spirits. They are also kept in purpose built pots and other vessels when not called upon directly.
The story of The Three Hunters.
Three hunters went to the mountains to obtain food but fell sick on their way. After several days of futile hunting, they got together, sat on the ground and discussed their misfortune.
They began to remember what the elders had taught them. Take a ceremonial pot with corn and sacred fetishes within and offer earnest prayers. This ritual has been handed down for generations.
Finally on the fourth day they found and killed a fox. Taking the corn form inside of the bowl, they made a stew. Not only were they revived, but their sickness was also cured.
