Theme # 21 : Native American Animal Symbolism

Sorry this is so late, but real life has, you know, a habit of getting in the way.

The application is the same as the Celtic animal symbolism theme, so just make the necessary changes and you'll be good to go! In the same way, you can ask for one or two stamps since there are so many options!

Also, I'm going to remove the moderated posting for now. There's been less spam lately, so hopefully I can keep it like this!

  1. Please vote on everyone that needs it.
  2. You may post 2 themes at once.
  3. Please tag your application with !needs votes and [native american theme].
  4. Check over the options below.
  5. Post!
