When buffalo roamed the earth and the nomadic Plains Indians followed, it was by the light of Polaris, the North Star, the Star that Never Walks Around, that the tribes were always able to find their way.
Stella Bennett has transformed the tarot into an oracle based on Native American lore. The traditional suits of Wands (fire), Cups (water), Swords (air), and Pentacles (earth) here become Thunderbirds (creatures of the fire from the sky), Frogs (water creatures), Butterflies (creatures of the air), and Turtles (the Native American symbol of Mother Earth). On the Court cards are images of warriors and medicine women. On the major arcana we see swans representing one's acceptance of transformation, and coyote as the cosmic trickster. Bennett's guidebook shows readers how to use their own intuitions to interpret card imagery and to read cards for themselves and others.
