Amanda, I teach my students all about animals that hold certain powers..so
don't feel like you are crazy. I stumbled upon some information last year
about SENUFO cloth paintings. The Senufo people are from the North Central
area of the Ivory Coast, neighboring Mali. Their masks and cloth paintings
are among the most re-knowned of Africa. I have never done a search for the
info on the web..but maybe it exists out there. Another way to go are the
Aborigines of Australia if you are looking for other cultures and
information..they believe animals to have special qualities as well. I just
did this culture with my first graders and they loved it! Good luck,
Stephanie
