The turtle is an emblematic animal of the Native American culture. 

It is considered as the mother of the Earth: indeed, according to the Iroquois and the Sioux, the Earth rests on the back of a tortoise which is at the origin of the beginning of the world.

The turtle is also a symbol of knowledge, longevity, love and protection. 

She is particularly considered as the protector of newborns by guiding their coming into the world.
