The shield was an important symbol for the warrior. Crows were proud and honored their shield. Each warrior’s particular medicine, which was given to him through a vision quest, was often painted on them. The stars spoke to this warrior, and he relies on them for bravery and strength. The black and white stripes signify the land and sky that they fight for.
