Native American Symbol – Whirling Log (Swastika)
The design of the Whirling Logs is similar in appearance to the symbol of horror associated with the Nazis.
Both are swastikas.Swastika is Sanskrit meaning “well-being”. Throughout most of history, it has been associated with order and stability. The unfortunate association of the swastika with Hitler understandably makes some people uncomfortable when they see a similar symbol on Native American baskets, rugs and jewelry.
It is also common to see it in Ethiopian art
