This is the image I chose to represent the discussion of What Digital Tribes can learn from Native Americans. I like this image because it was on a 1000 year old pendant found in Southeast United States, my tribal homelands. The image meaning is unknown.
I like to think it represents an alliance of various groups. Woodpeckers may have represented war, so perhaps it was the formation of a tribe or alliance to do battle. The square flows like an eternal river around the sun. Perhaps it is a reflection on the passage of time and a lasting commitment to established bonds.
