Black Bear Toy
Bears are a prominent symbol in American history and folklore. In Navajo culture, it was believed that the black bear was the strongest of all bears, and it was often prayed too. Unlike larger bear species such as the brown bearm, human encounters with black bears rarely lead to serious injury or fatalities, despite how common they are. In fact, only 10% of all humans encounters with black bears resulted in injury, and almost all of them resulted in a female black bear protecting her cubs.
