Wolf Medicine

Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enormous sense of family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge, and they live by carefully defined rules and rituals. They are friendly, social, and highly intelligent.

Wolves are the epitome of the wild spirit. Their positive characteristics are numerous. Many believe that the true test of America’s sincerity about protecting the environment will revolve around whether or not the wolf remains protected and is allowed to be reintroduced into areas of the country where it has heretofore been eliminated. The wolf is the true spirit of the free and unspoiled wilderness.

The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the moon is its power ally. The moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Baying at the moon may be an indication of Wolf’s desire to connect with new ideas which are just below the surface of consciousness.

Wolf would not come to you unless you requested the appearance of the tribe’s greatest teacher. The wolf teaches you to know who you are and to develop strength, confidence and surety in that so that you do not have to demonstrate and prove yourself at all.

Wolves have a complex communication system - using body language. Usually those with wolf totems are very expressive with hands, posture, face or in some other manner. If you have difficulty conveying your moods and ideas to others, meditate and study the wolf. It will teach you how to empower your verbal communications with appropriate body language.

The wolf has a capacity for making quick and firm emotional attachments. Learning to trust your own insights and to secure your attachments accordingly is part of what wolf medicine teaches. The wolf can help you to hear the inner and guard you from inappropriate actions. It will guard you as it teaches you – sometimes strongly, sometimes gently – but always with love. When wolf shows up, it is time to breathe new life into your life and rituals. Find a new path, take a new journey, take control of your life. You are the governor of your life. You create it and direct it. Do so with harmony and discipline, and then you will know the true spirit of freedom.

Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the Great Mystery and life. As you feel Wolf coming alive within you, you may wish to share your knowledge by writing or lecturing on information that will help others better understand their uniqueness or path in life. It is in the sharing of great truths that the consciousness of humanity will attain new heights.

Traditionally, someone with Wolf Medicine has a strong sense of self, and communicates well through subtle changes in voice inflection and body movements. They often find new solutions to problems while providing stability and support that one normally associates with a family structure.

I have unfortunate news to share with you. This is a letter sent to all Sisters of the Wolf by Suzanne Laverty, past Director of The Wolf Recovery Foundation. It saddened my heart and I shed tears. The grief I felt, I cannot explain.
                       


THE DEATH OF AUNTIE - KILLED BY POACHER

                       

She was a shadowy gray adult female, born in 1991 in the Ninemile valley near Missoula, Montana. Her family, the Ninemile pack, was made famous by wilderness author Rick Bass in his bestseller, "The Ninemile Wolves," published by Ballantine Books, 1993. The Ninemile pack was one the first packs to settle in Northwestern Montana. Their story was plagued with the difficulties of being among the first wolves to return to an area where many people feared and opposed the return of the wolf. Several pioneer wolves died but enough lived to give birth to pups and define their niche in this new wolf territory. Rick's book chronicles their re-establishment with the help of Mike Jimenez, a dedicated wolf researcher who has been the guardian of this pack since they first settled the Ninemile valley.

This adult gray female was the daughter of one of the original settlers. She was nicknamed "Auntie" by biologist Mike Jimenez as she took over the role of primary caregiver for the pups of the pack. While the alpha female (the mother) would hunt for food to feed her pups, Auntie would stay at the densite and stand guard over the youngsters. Wolf "babysitters" also serve as teachers for the pups who must quickly learn the essential skills for survival.

In February of 1997, the pups of the year nearly full grown, Auntie and several of the pups she had helped raise left the Ninemile valley. The pack had grown to 12 members and wolves often disperse from their home pack to search for new territory to start new packs. As only one female (the alpha) typically breeds and produces pups, perhaps Auntie was searching for a mate to begin her own family. Tragically, before breeding season, she was illegally killed near the northern city of Moscow, Idaho. As there is no evidence to suggest she had been involved in the death of any livestock it appears her death was simply a random act of violence against a species long misunderstood in this region. The old "joke" among wolf opponents is "Shoot, Shovel and Shut Up." Often law enforcement officers find little evidence to convict wolf killers. Yet, this time they discovered the crime and, with our help, Auntie's killer may yet be brought to justice.

The Wolf Recovery Foundation have pledged to assist the US Fish & Wildlife Service Law Enforcement officers with our help. Together we are building the Wolf Protection Fund to directly aid in the recovery and protection of wolves. Donations raised through this fund will help us post a reward for information leading to filing criminal charges against Auntie's killer. In the long term, these funds will be strictly used to advance the recovery of wolves though public outreach, future protection, research, and efforts to restore wolves where they rightfully belong.

THE WOLVES NEED YOUR HELP NOW

The time to help is now. It takes funding to make these efforts successful. If you can afford to help us, please act today. If you know others who understand the importance of our mission and want to help, please contact them or send us their names. Every donation is important as together each of us strengthens the circle of support for the wolves. The Wolf Recovery Foundation are well known for their important roles in wolf restoration. Their union in this effort flags the critical need for a fund that can serve to protect and advance the recovery of wild wolves now and for future generations. For more information contact the Director of the Wolf Recovery Foundation at tory@forwolves.org.
