Native American Symbol Meaning for the Z or ZigZag
The "Z" or the zig zag is a common Native American symbol and motif (example shown above).
I got an email from someone who had Native American tapestries with a large "Z" woven in the center. He asked me what the Native American symbol meaning of the "Z" was, to which I respond:
The straight horizontal line in Native American glphys represents movement upon Mother Earth and closing connections with Father Sky.
If the center line of the Z slants left it indicates the path of the soul - the journey the spirit takes and the walk that is made on within the spirit.
If the middle line in the Z slants to the right, this indicates forces that call loudly to a person's soul - passions or issues that compel a person to take a chosen path of life.
The two horizontal lines (top and bottom - connecting the middle slant line) indicate the journey of life and the understanding as we walk upon the grounding plane of Earth - we area also living the life of Sky.
These lines definitions are common to Plains Native Peoples of North America.
I hope you have enjoyed these thoughts on the Native American symbol "z" motif or zig zag symbolic meaning..
