According to Native legend, a wyakin is a spiritual being that guides and protects a person throughout life. As a rite of passage, adolescents were taken to an isolated location where they remained alone and vulnerable until visited by a wyakin (often in the form of an animal or bird) in a vision or dream. Once the wyakin spirit had revealed itself, it stayed with the individual and served as a guiding force for life.
