The large red stripe across the middle represents the bloodstream of humanity. These seven virtues are on a journey in the cover of darkness to bring their gifts to the (sáhnis) people. The Northern lights in each square are the spirits from the past that are lighting the way for the horses. Six faint feathers are symmetrically placed around the shield; these feathers are symbolic of the subtle life presence of the six directions.  The ribbons hanging from the feathers represent the male and the female.  The shield is marked with the hand print of the “Holy Father” (atíAx waaRUxti). The beaded horsehair coming from the hand print is the insignia of the Sacred Dog (the Horse Nation).
