Study the habitats and habits of the animal totems
Do they live on land, in the water, can they fly?
What do they eat? They are carnivores. By far, the most important prey among rodents is squirrels as they are almost fully diurnal.
Sun Bear speaks: “Red Tail hawks are very special birds to native people. Those of the Pueblo societies referred to them as red eagles and considered that they, like the eagle, had a special connection with the sky and the sun. Because the birds can fly so high and see the earth so clearly from their heights, feathers from them were often used ceremonially to carry prayers to the sun and beyond, to the Creator.”

Sun Bear speaks
RedHawk people like the sun and warmth and they also like to be in active situations which can utilize their intense mental, physical and emotional energy.
They are usually open people, willing to listen to any new ideas or philosophies, and sometimes they accept things that later prove harmful for them. When they find themselves in the wrong situations or under too much strain, they can fracture, like their stone (the opal) and lose the life vitality that usually gives them their fire and sparkle.
Symbols of hope
Red Hawk people, are often the symbol of hope for any new idea that is struggling to be born.
Red Hawk people may have the tendency to hit their heads accidentally a lot more frequently than other people, perhaps because they sometimes tend to fly into things too quickly, without taking the time to look them over.
Because of their clear sight, foresight and energy, Red Hawk people make good leaders when they have learned to channel their energy and to stay with something as long as it need them.
