    The Medicine Shield Vision Quest and Beyond!

    The Native American medicine shield had nothing to do with protection in battle although, aside from the eagle’s feather head dress, it is one of the most recognizable war-like paraphernalia. The shield represented the warrior’s personal vision – the owner’s sacred intentions and ‘medicine’ or inherent power. As such, it was treasured by many American Indian tribes.
