Dragonflies are sacred in many Native American tribes
symbolizing happiness, healing and transformation,
whose spirit was often called upon by medicine men and women.
To the Navajo tribe, the dragonfly is a symbol of pure water.
In Plains Indian traditions, dragonflies are symbols of protection and even invincibility
