The crane symbolism was used extensively in Native America. Most of the Native American tribes associated these birds with good fortune. Among the fishers of these tribes, a crane sighting was widely regarded as a good omen and indicated that they would catch a lot of fish that day.
In some popular folklore, the cranes were said to play a peacemaker role in any quarrel or conflict and were, thus, symbolic of justice and righteousness.
To the people of the Anishinabe tribes, the cranes stood for elocution and leadership qualities, while the Cheyennes believed them to the harbingers of rain and lightning. The tribes of Chumash and Creeks included a Crane Dance in their traditional tribal dance.
