Elk Medicine

The elk is one of the most regal animals of North America. At one time, it lived through the United States, but by the late 1800s, it was wiped out of the eastern part of the country. Today, it is a protected animal living in the western mountains.

The Shawnee Indians named this animal wapiti, which is probably a more appropriate name. White settlers called it Elk, after a European animal that resembled a moose.

The elk is an animal of great strength, power and stamina. It can run at a fast trot for extended periods of time. One of its primary defenses is to outrun its predators.

If an elk has come into your life, it can mean that you are about to hit stride. Elk may also have shown up to teach you that you are about to hit your stride. Have you been overdoing it? Have others around you? Have you given up or thought about giving up too soon? Are you pursuing things enough? Are you trying for the quick and easy when the long and steady will be most effective for you right now? An elk takes four to five years to reach maturity. If you have started new projects or tasks recently, you may need to give them four or five years to see them reach the peak of success.

Few elks are ever loners or solitary. They congregate and live in herds, staying mostly with their own gender. If elk has shown up, it may reflect a need for companionship or group support of some fashion.

Elk MedicineAn elk is in its power time in the autumn. This is its rutting season. Except during the season of rut, elks stay with their own gender. Sometimes, elk will show up as a totem to remind us that we need to have the company of the opposite sex occasionally for balance.

  • Have you been neglecting your need to relate to others of the opposite sex?
  • Are you keeping company of one gender–-to the neglect of the other?
  • Have you been spending too much time with the opposite sex and not enough with your own?
