Shown left is an adaptation for the Native American symbol for sister (plains Indian).
The X with a small circle is a represents woman-ness, female power, fertility, and compassion.
Side-by-side, these symbols represent two women bonded in a relationship of the soul – sisters.
Should one female symbol be above the other – this would be a symbol for mother or a representation of a grandmother relationship.
The positioning of side-by-side is very important as it indicates a union, bond, equality – a sharing in the journey of blood.
The circle around the two female symbols signifies family – family ties, family blood, clan closeness & protection. The circle that never breaks – it holds that which can never be broken – the bond of souls, the bond of blood between this female relationship.
