The turtle taught us patience and never to give up. Turtle is
seen as strength and solidarity-old and wise and well
respected. The turtle is one of the three clans of the Oneida
Nation. The thirteen squares on a turtle’s back represent the
thirteen full moons of the calendar year. It was the turtle who
offered its shell as a foundation in the creation story.

We give thanks to the spirit of waters for our strength of
wellbeing. The waters of the world have provided many things.
They quench our thirst, provide food for the plant life, and are
the source of strength for the medicines we need. (Iroquois
Prayer of Thanksgiving)
