Description

Native American Lizard Mythology

Lizards play positive roles in the folklore of many Native American tribes. In Plains Indian tribes, lizards are associated with healing and survival, and also with masculinity. In some Plains tribes, a newborn boy's umbilical cord was sewn into an amulet in the shape of a lizard to ensure his health and strength. Today, many Cheyenne people still consider it bad luck to kill a lizard. In the mythology of some California Indian tribes, such as the Pomo, Lizard was one of the major figures of creation, who made humans partially in his image. In Southwestern tribes, horned lizards (sometimes called "horny-toads" in English) are considered sacred medicine animals; Gila Monster (a type of large poisonous desert lizard) features as a powerful hero in Navajo and other Southwestern legends. In other tribes, lizards are associated with protection (especially of children), prosperity, renewal, and good luck.

Shipping policies

All of my items are carefully packaged and sent in a bubble mailer envelope. I have tried to ship in the most economical way possible. Heavier packages will be sent in a priority mail box.

I try really hard to be very accurate with shipping charges. Shipping charge includes not only the cost of postage, but also packaging (bubble envelope, bags, and other protective wrapping necessary), etc...

I can also ship normal items Priority Mail or Express Mail... for those of you in a bind. Contact me for pricing.

Orders are not insured. I've never had a package not arrive but If you would prefer to have your package insured against loss or damage, please message me a request for insured shipping and I will send you a PayPal invoice for the difference.

Please understand that I am not responsible for weather, postal or customs delays. I hate them too! Buyers are responsible for any duty or custom charges if applicable.

All orders will be shipped within 1-2 business days. Normal shipping time (in the United States) is 1-4 business days.

International Orders take an average of 7-10 days but that's just an average. Some take as long as 6 weeks. Depending on the country and the time of year. Once I get it mailed out, the tracking information will be sent. After that, it's out of my hands. Please understand, once I mail it out, I can't control the postal system or the speed of delivery. Also, once it leaves the United States (through either El Paso, TX or Chicago, IL) you may not be able to track it until delivered. I can prove that it was shipped out but there isn't proof that you received it. Therefore, I will not issue a refund on international orders if you don't receive them. So please consider adding insurance on international orders. If you have questions, please message me before placing an order!

And… please, please get your address right. Sounds crazy but it happens. I cannot be responsible for incorrect addresses. No… really! I will charge you another delivery fee if it is returned to me! If you are an international customer, please leave me a phone number for the international shipping label.
