The trail marker is used by a family or clan to mark a trail. It indicates the direction to a ceremony, meeting or home of a clan. The colors on the trail marker are the clan colors. Bear skulls represent wisdom, strength and courage. The feathers represent a connection to the Great Spirits and carry messages and prayers to them. The spearhead at the bottom of the trail marker is used for securing the marker into the ground. A trail marker without the spearhead indicates a clan living in a mountainous region; the marker then would be hung from a tree.
