To the Zuni people, there are six cardinal directions comprised of the four primary compass points, plus the upper region (sky) and the lower region (underground). Each region is represented by a specific color and by an animal that is designated as the guardian of that region. There are multiple varieties of directions sets. The most commonly seen and most often collected is the Healing & Protective set. Of primary concern to both the Zuni and fetish collectors alike are the health and well being of family and their homes.
