Native American Tarot review by Patsy Secord

According to the deck's creator: “The cards depict different aspects of daily life from a variety of Native American tribes including Apache, Arapaho, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Chippewa, Comanche, Hopi , Huron, Inuit, Iroquois, Kiowa, Navaho, Papago, Pima, Pueblo Shawnee, Sioux and Yaqui.”

The cards feature soft colors on a predominately white background with black borders. Hand drawn, colored pencil images make up this unique, slightly masculine, southwest deck. The card titles are in English. Suit titles are only on the Tribal Figures (Court Cards) and Ones (Aces). The pips have a individual card titles; for example, rather than the 7 of Pipes it is labeled Counting Cup, 10 of Shields = Harvest, 8 of Blades = Captive, etc.

Card size is 2 3/8” x 4 3/8”, ... read more reviews.
