Some sort of Native American lore thing which I never bothered to investigate but all of a sudden became interested in. She tattooed herself in accordance to her totems, like she had wolf paw pads on her feet, a falcon on her right arm, a snake on the left... so on.
Any of you know anything about these mystical 'Totem animals'? What are they? Have you ever heard of them before?

The wooden carvings, or totems, were symbols, emblems, and representations of the people, their ancestry, and their gods.
