Common Buckeye Butterfly
The butterfly represents love in China, is considered a messenger of spirit to Native Americans, and is a symbol of the resurrection in Christian traditions.
It is said, by Native Americans, that if you whisper a wish to a butterfly and it flies up to the heavens – your wish will be granted! The Fancy Shawl dance of the Native Americans is believed to have originated as a Butterfly Dance.
