The Turtle is the imagery of Aboriginal peoples, the turtle is associated with the great myths surrounding the creation of the earth. Slow-moving but steady and tenacious, this animal has come to symbolize both wisdom and perseverance. These two qualities are shared by the First Nations and Inuit, and have contributed towards the survival of indigenous populations for thousands of years on the American continents.  The Huron Wendat of Wendake are members of the Big Turtle Clan.
