Native American Culture
In Native American culture, the ermine is often associated with good luck and protection due to its sharp senses and quick reflexes. The ermine’s ability to adapt to harsh winter conditions and its determination to keep its coat clean, even at the risk of its life, is seen as an embodiment of bravery and purity.
Ermine were admired by tribes due to their bravery and tenacity. Although scarcely a foot long, it might challenge a grizzly and it was witnessed that an eagle snatched a weasel from the ground but the bird soon fell during flight after its neck was bitten. Ermine are trapped in the winter in regions when its hair turns white to match snow-covered ground.
