Of all the animals, Wolf has the strongest supranational powers. Through his intelligence, he warned others of the great flood. Wolves are the most proficient hunters of all the land animals and are highly respected for their ability. Since this ability can be conferred on people, they are often sought after as spirit aids by Natives hunters. Wolves mate for life and are a symbol of togetherness and communication.
