The fox is a tricky character for Native Americans. Some groups pictured the fox as a cunning trickster with a darker side. But some tribes in Northern California or parts of the Midwest and Northeast viewed the fox’s cunning as wise. In all cases, the fox is said to be intelligent.
There are certainly many times in your life when you have valued your parent’s wisdom and intelligence. The fox as an animal symbol for your knowledgeable and helpful parents and mentors is spot on.
